Announcement expected shortly regarding Sports Capital Programme

SCG

For sometime I have been raising with the Sports Minister the need to announce details of the next Sports Capital Programme at the earliest possible date. There are many clubs throughout Cavan/Monaghan who are planning on providing new/upgraded facilities.

An early indication in relation to the next Programme would facilitate clubs with their preparatory work.

The Minister for Sport in reply to my Parliamentary Question in Dail Éireann stated –  

“The 2017 round of the Sports Capital Programme attracted a record 2,320 applications. In November and December last, Minister Ross and I announced €60m in allocations to a record 1,800 projects under the 2017 round. A review of the 2017 round of the programme has now been finalised and published on my Department’s website (www.dttas.ie). This review highlights aspects of the 2017 round of the SCP that worked well but also suggests some further improvements which should be considered prior to the next round of the programme opening for applications. An announcement in relation to the timing of the next round is expected in the coming weeks”.
