Sports clubs and organisations should register as soon as possible to be in with a chance of accessing the €40 million in funding available under the 2014 Sports Capital Programme which is now open for applications, according to Fine Gael TD, John Paul Phelan.
“The timeline is tight and the deadline for registration is February 7. Applications close on February 28. More than a thousand organisations have registered already and there is only limited time available for other sports clubs to apply,” he said.
“The 2012 Programme was a huge success but demand outstripped supply, with €7.50 sought for every €1 available. That’s why it’s vital for clubs and groups applying for the 2014 scheme to get registered immediately and start filling out the online form now to give themselves the best chance of making a good application,” Deputy Phelan added.
