We have a particular interest in locally-based projects seeking to increase the participation of male Travellers in the development of their own community, including initiatives breaking new ground in family support, culturally-appropriate employment initiatives and personal development. We are interested in initiatives which improve literacy levels and educational progression and projects which support physical and mental health. We encourage fresh thinking around enduring issues and applications should include a pathway to sharing the learning at all levels.
Maximum grants available are in the region of €12,000 to €15,000. The average grant in 2016 was €7,000.
The Traveller Men Grant Programme is funded by Porticus UK, the Daughters of the Cross of Liege and the Discalced Carmelites.
