In 2022, the Government provided an additional investment of €35 million to support sporting organisations with the rising energy costs associated with the provision of sport e.g., indoor activity in winter, the provision of outdoor floodlighting etc.
To date €19m has been distributed to Sport Ireland Recognised National Governing Bodies of Sport.
A second phase of the Scheme is now open via Local Sports Partnerships.
This phase will target community owned sports facilities which do not currently qualify for TBESS or other Government support schemes through DRCD, Local Authorities etc.
Clubs or facilities affiliated to Sport Ireland recognised NGBs should access support directly through their NGB.
General cost of living increases such as rising costs in accommodation, rent, rates or labour costs are not eligible. Fuel costs associated with machinery, vehicles, travel or transport do not qualify.
