The Age & Opportunity Active National Grant Scheme 2022 is now open for applications.
The Age & Opportunity Active National Grant Scheme offers financial supports – provided by Sport Ireland – to local clubs, groups and organisations, nationwide who promote increased participation in recreational sport or physical activity for older people.
We recognise the impact that Covid-19 has had on older peoples’ participation in sport and physical activity over the last 2 years. Therefore, within this 2022 Grant there are specific allocations aimed at encouraging older people back to sport and their clubs. We also recognise the impact Covid-19 has had on those living in nursing homes and attending day care settings so we are opening up the grant this year to all public and private nursing homes and day care settings.
The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Friday the 25th February 2022.
