The Department of Rural and Community Development (DRCD) has launched a ‘COVID-19 Stability Fund 2021’ which is open to community and voluntary organisations, charities and social enterprises. The press release announcing the launch of this Fund is available here for further information.
The primary aim of the COVID-19 Stability Fund 2021 is to help organisations suffering financially due to a reduction in their fundraising and/or traded income to continue to deliver eligible critical services over this difficult period
Priority will be given to:
Organisations who have not received previous support from the DRCD COVID-19 Stability Scheme 2020 or other Government supports
Community Centres that are delivering services to the wider community that are not registered with the Companies Registration Office or the Registrar of Friendly Societies or the Charities Regulator in the Republic of Ireland
Organisations that are experiencing severe financial difficulties and are at risk of severely reducing their eligible critical services and supports and/or in danger of not continuing and/or reopening
Organisations that are not in receipt of public funding or where public funding represents a relatively small percentage of your overall income
The eligibility criteria and guidance for applicants have been updated for 2021 and are available on the Pobal website.
Each organisation must determine their eligibility for the Fund prior to applying. Pobal are anticipating high demand for this funding and therefore, meeting the eligibility criteria and/or submitting an application do not guarantee funding.
The key timelines are as follows:
|Register on the application portal
|Thursday, 6 May, 2021 to Tuesday, 25 May, 2021|
|Help and support available
|Thursday, 6 May, 2021 to Thursday, 27 May, 2021
