Cork City Council, through its Sports Capital Grant Scheme, seeks to assist local voluntary sporting organisations and clubs in developing and enhancing sports and physical recreation activities throughout the City. A sum of €400,000 has been provided for the Scheme in 2021.
The scheme is aimed at providing grant aid to projects that are directly related to enhancing facilities and must be of a capital nature.
The scheme is not intended as an alternative to any Department Sports Capital Grant Scheme or other sources of funding, but will complement any such scheme, possibly helping with local contributions to satisfy criteria of other funding agencies, or assisting with funding where certain works are not covered by other grant schemes.
This year, you have the option of applying online - details below.
Minor Sports Grants (Under 5k)

Major Sports Grants (€5k - €10k)
This Scheme will allow for capital grants to develop sport and active recreation facilities throughout the City.
