Sports clubs and other community organisations around Laois are to be given help to tap into funding that has been vital in the upgrade of facilities.

Laois Public Participation Network (PPN), in collaboration with the Sports Section of Laois County Council, presents a Sports Capital Grant Drawdown Workshop. The workshop will support sports clubs across Laois with the draw-down process of their Sports Capital Grants.

A record of €3.5 million under the Sports Capital Projects scheme has been given to a total of 61 Laois Sports Clubs. The funding will benefit Sports Clubs and Communities across Laois.

The funding is for a range of development work being carried out by various clubs and groups – including astroturf, floodlights, pitch development, and walking tracks.

Apart from sports clubs the grants are open to community groups, schools and other organisations that are upgrading or installing new leisure amenities for local use.

The Sports Capital Grant Drawdown Workshop will take place on Tuesday, June 28 at 7 pm in the Council Chamber, Laois County Council. The workshop will be delivered by Ann Marie Maher, Sports & Leisure Officer, Laois County Council.

The workshop will cover the process of drawing down the grant support and the financial requirements of the Department of Sport for acquiring the funding. This workshop will have a lot of essential information for any clubs looking to easily draw down their Sports Capital Grant allocations.

As we expect this to be a very popular event each member group may only nominate a max of two attendees. The closing date for receipt of registration is noon on Monday, June 27or once all the available places have been filled.

Laois PPN will contact all successful applicants before the event.
