Leitrim’s first Local Economic and Community Plan (LECP) is about joining up approaches to Economic and Community development at local County level. It’s based on evidence-based assessment of Leitrim’s economic and
community needs and aspirations and sets out a range of actions that address those needs and fulfil those aspirations.
Applying for Grants – You should consider and refer to the LECP when applying for grants. It will strengthen your application if your aims are in step with the goals and actions of the plan.
