The URBAN Community Initiative was developed to address a range of problems associated with social and economic exclusion within deprived inner-city and urban areas. Funding under this Community Initiative is based on urban regeneration strategies drawn up by the Local Authority, in association with a local partnership including Social Partners, N.G.O.s, residents groups and others.

Possible measures under URBAN include the reclamation of derelict sites and restoration of public spaces,training in new technologies, the creation of car-free areas, and studies on improving public services.

Ballyfermot in Dublin is the selected Irish area to receive funding under this Initiative during the 2000-2006 programming period. URBAN has a total budget of €11.4 million and has been allocated €5.3 million by the European Regional Development Fund (E.R.D.F.).
