It'll go towards enhancing services and addressing any gaps in support.
Almost €50,000 in funding is going towards supporting the LGBT+ community in the midlands.
Youth Work Ireland Laois is receiving the grant for its Midlands LGBT+ project.
It'll be used to develop rural community infrastructure that's inclusive of LGBT+ people, address gaps in services, and support existing community organisations.
The fund forms part of the the government's wider National LGBTI+ Inclusion Strategy.
