Following a call for proposals in September 2016, grants totaling €5.2 million to promote Gender Equality were awarded to 18 projects. The projects will be delivered over a three year period in multiple locations across Ireland by Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), locally based community groups, and others, who were successful following an open Call for Proposals for funding under the PEIL 2014 - 2020.
Details of the call for proposals and the allocated funding can be viewed here.
The gender equality projects will support women’s entrepreneurship and participation in the workforce through a range of training and mentoring initiatives.
