Muintir na Tíre are happy to announce the launch of a new Text Alert Rebate Scheme on the last day of the 2016 Ploughing Championships.
Speaking as she visited the National Ploughing Championships today, Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald announced that the funding for the Community Alert programme now incorporates a new €100,000 rebate scheme for local groups registered under the Text Alert Scheme. This follows intensive lobbying from Muintir na Tíre to recognise the exceptional work carried out by local groups to support the Gardaí in their crime prevention efforts. It provides recognition of the costs which these communities pay themselves to reduce crime in their areas.
Each eligible group will receive a rebate of at least €100 towards allowable costs. Muintir na Tíre will administer the scheme and further details are available here.
