Tipperary Sports Partnership Covid 19 - Return to Sport Grant Scheme

Tipperary Sports Partnership

Sports clubs in Tipperary can now apply for the COVID-19 /Return to Sport Grant Scheme of
up to €1,500 through Tipperary Sports Partnership.

The overall aim of this grant scheme is to aid local clubs with covering costs associated with the reopening of sports clubs. This scheme is designed to support sports clubs that do not have the finances to implement COVID-19 related hygiene and social distancing protocols.

The COVID-19 /Return to Sport Grant Scheme can be used to support COVID-19 related expenditure dating from 2nd May 2020 onwards (Date of publication of Government roadmap to recovery). As the total fund available is limited, clubs which already have the finances to implement COVID-19 protocols should not apply.

This grant scheme is designed and intended to support return to sporting activities only and cannot be used to support COVID-19 costs related to hospitality services such as bars or restaurants within sports facilities.

The scheme will be based on identified needs. Tipperary Sports Partnership will ensure that the investment is distributed fairly and every effort will be made to ensure that the wider sports community benefits from this scheme. There is a €1,500 limit per club on this grant scheme

Speaking regarding the launch of the COVID-19 Club Small Grant Scheme, LSP Coordinator with Tipperary Sports Partnership, Valerie Connolly, said “Tipperary Sports Partnership is delighted to announce this round of funding to support sport club in Tipperary Return to Sport especially indoor sports who have had their doors closed for so long.
