Meath receives €7,230,499 under Sports Capital Grant Scheme 2020.

The sporting community of Meath are today basking in the after glow of the whopping allocation sports clubs and groups received under the 2020 Sports Capital grant scheme. In what is record level funding allocation across the country, it reflects the government’s ongoing support to Sport during the COVID-19 pandemic as it emerges from the challenges of the past two years.

The level of funding provided  also reflects the funding challenges facing clubs across the country, the unprecedented number of applications received and the vital role that sport plays in supporting community and individual wellbeing, a role that came into sharp focus duringthe pandemic.

Speaking following the funding allocation for Meath, Mary Murphy, Manager of Meath LSP welcomed the total amount allocated to the county but also the breadth of sports that will benefit from the funding. She went on to say “in total €7,230,499 was awarded to clubs & community centres in Meath to develop sports facilities & provide equipment, this is hugely important if we want to achieve our participation targets and deliver on the objectives of the National Sports Policy. Congratulations to all the volunteers across Meath who worked tirelessly to ensure they were successful under this grant measure.”

Under the Sports Capital & Equipment Grants €6,277,700 was awarded to 84 clubs; €384,553 was awarded to three organisations under the Regional Sports Capital scheme and 36 clubs/groups benefitted from €568,246 under the Sports Capital Equipment only grant scheme – that particular fund was awarded in 2021.

The Sports Capital and Equipment Programme (SCEP) is the primary vehicle for government support for the development of sports and recreation facilities and the purchase of non-personal sports equipment throughout the country.

All unsuccessful applicants will be given the opportunity to appeal the department’s decision  and information on the appeal process will issue to relevant organisations in the coming  weeks. €6 million has been set aside to cover successful appeals under this process.
