Covid Grant FlyerIn December 2020, Dún Laoghaire Rathdown Sports Partnership was delighted to assist 36 local clubs with Covid-19 related costs and expenditure totalling €43,000. Funding of €15,000 has also been made available to support the Parkruns in the area once they can return.

The COVID-19 Club Small Grant Scheme is part of a series of COVID-19 related funding schemes from Sport Ireland, following the announcement of €70 million of funding by the Government to support the sports sector in response to the Covid-19 crisis.

This scheme was designed to support sports clubs that do not have the finances to implement COVID-19 related hygiene and social distancing protocols. The COVID-19 Club Small Grants will be used to support COVID-19 related expenditure dating from May 2020 onwards.
