Do you have an innovative idea or practical solution for addressing climate change? Have you identified a research gap or a lost practice that can help address climate mitigation and adaptation measures in your community? Then, apply for the Kildare County Council’s Climate Innovation Fund 2022 today!

Following the success of the inaugural Climate Innovation Fund in 2021, Kildare County Council’s Climate Action Office is set to run an iteration of the fund in 2022. The aim of this fund is to foster innovative climate solutions at a local scale in the county of Kildare. Specifically, the fund is aimed at community groups, SMEs, entrepreneurs, tradespeople, early-career researchers, education institutions and individual citizens active in Kildare. In 2022, the fund is expanding, and the following Municipal Districts have allocated Local Property Tax to fund this grant: Athy, Celbridge-Leixlip, Clane-Maynooth, Kildare-Newbridge & Naas.  Because of this, the fund is restricted to individuals and groups that live or work in these Municipal Districts.

A total funding pot of €25,000 is available per Municipal District. The minimum funding request is €5,000 and the maximum request is €25,000. To note, monies will only be granted for research / innovation activities during the project. For more information please consult the application guidelines below. If you have any questions or clarifications regarding the funding, please email and submit queries by Wednesday 18th May.
