Laois sporting clubs have been urged to register their interest for grants on a new online system for Sports Capital Funding by Fine Gael TD for Laois, Charlie Flanagan.
“Many clubs hoping to access the new round of the Sports Capital Programme may not realise that they need to register their interest now using the new system known as OSCAR (Online Sports Capital Register). It has been designed to streamline the process, and will also allow clubs to track their applications,” Dep Flanagan said.
“The OSCAR system will be the only way to apply for Sports Capital funding in the future. If clubs don’t register now, then they won’t be able to apply for 2014 funding,” he said.
Over €40m has been allocated to the Sports Capital programme for 2014.
A Tax Registration Number (TRN) is required for registration, including written confirmation of the TRN from the Revenue Commissioner, either in the form of a tax clearance certificate or a letter from Revenue confirming your TRN. See www.sportscapitalprogramme.ie/.
Following their registration, clubs will be able to submit applications online from this Friday January 17. The application process will close on Friday February 28.
