The Government "Sports Capital" Programme was announced earlier this month.
The closing date for receipt of applications is November 24th.
The Sports Capital Programme, which is advertised on an annual basis, allocates funding to projects that are directly related to the provision of sports facilities and are of a capital nature. This means that the project must involve:
- improving or building an asset;
- buying sports equipment that is securely stored and will be used for at least five years.
Funding can be allocated to the following organisations under the programme:
Voluntary and community organisations, including sports clubs; national governing bodies of sport and third level education institutions, where it is evident that the proposed facility will contribute to the regional and/or national sporting infrastructure; and
in certain circumstances, schools, colleges and local authorities (see the Guidelines, Terms and Conditions to the 2007 Programme for more information)
The 2007 Sports Capital Programme was advertised in the national press on Sunday 15th and Monday 16th October 2006. The deadline for receipt of completed applications is 5pm on Friday 24th November 2006. We will strictly observe this deadline.
The Department will assess all applications received in accordance with the guidelines, terms and conditions of the 2007 Sports Capital Programme. We strongly advise all applicants to read the guidelines, terms and conditions document thoroughly before applying for funding under the Programme.
