It's comes as part of a €5.4m investment.
The Longford Westmeath Education and Training Board will benefit from nearly €300,000 in funding.
Minister for Further and Higher Education Simon Harris has announced a €5.4 million investment in the Further Education and Training sector.
As a result, LWETB will receive €289,500.
The overall funding means 127 projects in the sector have been approved, and cover health and safety issues, small-scale energy efficiency measures, and equipment.
Minister for Further and Higher Education, Simon Harris, says:
"This funding will be welcome news to the FET sector and will help deliver on ETBs ambitious plans for the future.
Over 120 projects across the country have been approved. Each will have a meaningful impact on students and their learning experience.
Today’s extra cash injection adds to the €8 million euro my Department issued to the ETBs in April under the Devolved Capital Grant."
Longford Westmeath TD and Junior European Minister Peter Burke says:
"I’m delighted that my colleague Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science Simon Harris TD, has today announced funding of over €5 million for Capital Grants to the Education and Training Boards across the country.
Of this total almost €290,000 will be allocated to projects in the Longford Westmeath area, LWETB.
This funding is in addition to funds allocated in April under the Devolved Capital Grant and allows investment in small scale Further Education Training projects at local level. Several projects have been approved and cover health and safety issues, small-scale energy efficiency measures, equipment and requests relating to positive improvements for learning spaces.
We have excellent opportunities in further education for our all in our communities and I am delighted to see the investment backing up that service and making vital improvements in their estates across the constituency.
This funding will go a long way towards improving the facilities available to learners in Further Education and will be a welcome boost to achieving sustainability targets set in the Climate Action Plan."
