The CLÁR programme (Ceantair Laga Árd-Riachtanais) provides funding for small-scale infrastructural projects in rural areas.
CLÁR aims to support sustainable development in identified areas by attracting people to live and work there. The funding works in conjunction with local funding and on the basis of locally identified priorities.
The scheme is funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development. It is delivered by local authorities in consultation with groups in local communities.
