Dear NGB / Funded Body,

 Sport Ireland now invites recognised Governing Bodies of Sport & other Funded Bodies to apply for support under the Government’s recently announced investment programme for sport.

 The Fund is divided into four key schemes:

  •  €40 million support for the three main field sports
  • €10 million support for recognised National Governing Bodies, Local Sports Partnerships & Other Funded Bodies
  • €15 million to support NGB affiliated clubs
  • €5  million to support Restart & Renewal Plans

The following are  links to the appropriate documents

 Points to Note:

  • All Organisations applying for funding should return the Consolidated Application Forms along with a signed Declaration & Checklist.
  • Organisations applying for funding on behalf of individual clubs should also return the Club Funding Spreadsheet.
  • Organisations seeking to develop new programmes that can advance sport and physical activity in the post COVID 19 public health era should also return the Restart & Renewal Project Application Form.
  • Sport Ireland will engage directly with the relevant bodies in relation to the Disability Sport Working Group in due course.
  • The closing date for applications will be Monday 14th of September at 5pm.
  • Late applications cannot be accepted.
  • Sport Ireland will make an initial assessment on the level of request under each scheme.
  • Final decisions will need to take into account the level of demand across the schemes.
  • Depending on the level of submissions, the outcome of those deliberations will be communicated to sports organisations in October 2020.
  • NGBs will need to put in place a parallel timeline to facilitate the applications of their affiliate clubs.


  • A webinar and Q&A session on the scheme will take place on Tuesday 28th July at 1130am.
  • The webinar is targeted at NGBs and NGB Unit funded bodies.
  • Queries on the scheme can be submitted by NGBs in advance of the webinar.
