We are pleased to announce that a further applicant window to apply for the COVID-19 Sustainability Support Fund will open from today Tuesday, 24th of November and will close at 1pm on Monday, 30th of November 2020.

This funding is accessible to providers (not-for-profit and for-profit) who can demonstrate that the other measures available as part of the July Stimulus Package are not sufficient by themselves to enable viable operations of their business. Further information in relation to eligibility is available in the Guidelines.

The Application Form, Workbook, and Applicant Guidelines for the ELC & SAC COVID-19 Sustainability Support Fund are available on the Hive and can be accessed here: https://earlyyearshive.ncs.gov.ie/useful-links/.

Support for Service Providers in relation to the completion of the Application Form and Workbook is available via the local City and County Childcare Committees. Contact details can be found in the Guidelines document. Pobal EYPC will not be providing support within this context except where queries relate to accessing the Hive.
