The deadline for clubs and organisations to register their interest in the Sports Capital Grants Programme is approaching.
The closing date for applications is Monday March 1. However, more urgently, the deadline for organisations to register their interest in making an application is Monday February 15.
This applies to organisations that have not registered and applied for a grant in previous years.
Grants are available to sports clubs, community groups, schools who may apply jointly for funding with sports clubs or organisations and local authorities.
Fianna Fail Minister for State at the Department of Finance, Sean Fleming, has urged all organisations in the county that are interested in the National Lottery funded Sports Capital and Equipment Grants to apply now.
He said: “Grants are available to sports clubs, community groups, schools who may apply jointly for funding with sports clubs or organisations and local authorities.
“This grant scheme can fund natural and artificial pitches, tracks and courts, LED floodlighting, fitness studios, essential security fencing, ball stopping nets, goal posts, hurling walls, handball alleys, dressing rooms, sports halls, gyms, access for people with disabilities, gym equipment, lawnmowers and equipment, defibrillators, and storage sheds.
“All applications must be completed online.
“As always I am only too happy and willing to assist any organisation in the County that is making an application for funding.
“I can be contacted on 057-8732692 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.”
