Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin TD, and Minister of State for Sport and Gaeltacht Affairs, Jack Chambers T.D, together with Sport Ireland, have announced almost €80m for the sport sector under two separate support programmes.
Some €73.6m in Covid funding is being allocated under five separate streams to help sports organisations to recover and grow post pandemic, support our grassroots network of clubs and local sports partnerships, and ensure people of all ages and abilities return to sport and physical activity.
A further €5.3m is being provided to sport National Governing Bodies (NGBs) and Local Sports Partnerships (LSPs) for the provision of sports equipment including the roll out of defibrillators for clubs, kits for school children and state of the art equipment for our high-performance athletes.
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Sports Partnership would like to invite applications from sports clubs and organisations under its Club Participation Grant Scheme 2022. The purpose of this grant scheme is to provide assistance to sports clubs/organisations based in the County to develop or expand targeted participation initiatives and the provision of training for volunteers/coaches.
Funding for this grants scheme is provided through Sport Ireland and is intended to support those clubs not already in receipt of significant core and/or additional funding.
This Club Participation Grants Scheme aims to support sports clubs, coaches and volunteers to develop greater participation among target groups as reflected in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Sports Partnership’s Strategic Plan 2018-2022. As such, for the 2022 grants scheme applications are invited for initiatives that will increase participation in sport and physical activity among girls/women and people with disabilities, especially within an area of disadvantage.
For further details on this grants scheme and to make an application please see the online application process here https://dlrcoco.submit.com/. The final date for applications is the 28th January 2022.
