2022 Commercial Rates Waiver Scheme 

Making of the rate for 2022


 Commercial Incentive Grant Scheme 2022

Kildare County Council has opened applications for their Commercial Incentive Grant Scheme for 2022.

The scheme will encourage the use of vacant commercial properties by providing a grant to eligible entrepreneurs who occupy certain vacant properties in 2022, in towns or village centres throughout the county. An attractive, vibrant commercial area contributes positively to a location’s retail and economic growth, boosting footfall and street activity.

This new scheme will complement the highly successful Shop Front Grants Scheme already available through Kildare County Council. Eligible businesses will receive the grant over three years.
