Funding & Grants

Local Development Companies

Local Development Companies (LDCs) are not-for-profit, volunteer-led organisations who provide a national service through locally-based services. Their services are integrated so employment supports, enterprise grants, social inclusion, training, well-being and environmental supports are available under one roof*
