1.3 Building Positive Relations: Pre-Application Support

Investment area 1.3 Building Positive Relations

The Junction, Dungannon

Programme (DS)
Investment Area

Prior to the funding call to the new PEACEPLUS Programme opening, the SEUPB held a pre-application support workshop at The Junction, Dungannon on the morning of Wednesday 28 September 2022. 

It targeted specifically at organisations that will promote positive relations through projects which transcend local boundaries and have the potential to achieve significant peace and reconciliation across Northern Ireland and the border counties of Ireland. These projects should involve cross-border dimensions where possible and appropriate to the intervention. The SEUPB anticipates that a funding call for this Investment Area will open in Autumn 2022, with an indicative budget allocation set at €35m.
