COVID-19 Club Small Grants Scheme

Limerick Sports Partnership in conjunction with Sport Ireland is promoting this grants scheme to support clubs and community groups.  The COVID-19 club small grant scheme is part of a programme from the Government of Ireland, implemented through Sport Ireland and its network of Local Sports Partnerships to support the sports sector during the COVID-19 pandemic.  This funding cannot be used to support COVID-19 costs related to hospitality services such as bars or restaurants within sports facilities. The COVID 19 Club Small Grants can be used to support COVID 19 related expenditure dating from 2nd May 2020 onwards (Date of publication of Government roadmap to recovery).

This scheme is designed to support clubs, which do not have the finances to implement COVID-19 related hygiene and social distancing protocols. As the total fund available is limited, clubs/community groups which already have the finances to implement COVID-19 protocols should not apply. Clubs must ensure that, where available, they prioritise the application for funding support via their National Governing Body or relevant representative body. Funding support for the same purpose should not be sought from multiple sources.

Closing date for the grants scheme is September 4th, 2020.
