Wicklow sports clubs urged to apply for government funding

Sports clubs in Wicklow are being encouraged to apply for the latest round of government funding.

Applications for support under the Sports capital programme 2014 are now being accepted. €40 million will be available for sports capital projects.

Applications can only be made on-line with the deadline for submissions the 28th of February.

“More than a thousand organisations have registered already and there is only limited time available for other sports clubs to apply. 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,” Minister of State for Tourism and Sport Michael Ring said.

Applications can only be made online this year and all interested bodies should go towww.sportscapitalprogramme.ie to register and make an application.
