Register now for new sports grant – Naughten

In Infrastructure by Denis Naughten

Denis Naughten TD has urged local clubs and sporting organisations to register their interest in participating in next year’s sports capital programme.

“While the Government is still assessing the criteria for the new round of funding it is likely that the grant scheme will focus on increasing participation in sport and on the utilisation of facilities by a number of sports and activities,” stated Denis Naughten.

“One of the conditions of the new grant programme will be that organisations will have to operate through a new online system which is accessible via the website where interested clubs and organisations can register their interest.

“I believe that it is important that any new funding stream provides the public with additional opportunities to get active and stay active in a wide range of sports, as well as providing a positive spin-off for employment locally,” he added.
