‘These Grants are usually made available in December, allowing sports clubs and
groups to plan for the year ahead. The expectation was that they would be paid
out in January, but it has now been confirmed to me that they will actually be
paid in February this year’ says Deputy Lowry.
‘The reason for the delay is that the Department received a huge volume of
applications for funding for the coming year. However, a significant number of
these application contained errors, so the Department took the decision to allow
these errors to be rectified and the applications resubmitted.
‘Full details of the Sports Capital Grants will published as soon as they are
available’ he concluded.
