Active National Grant Scheme 2023 

Cycling Ireland are encouraging clubs to apply for funding under the 2023 Active National Grant Scheme supported by Sport Ireland. 

Cycling clubs and local sports partnerships can apply for funding between €300 to €700 for a grant to fund initiatives that are aimed at those over the age of 50, with the grant administration run by Age & Opportunity. 

The National Sports Policy asks us all to offer opportunities to everyone to participate in sport and physical activity, including older people, and Age & Opportunity are seeking to work with clubs and organisations across the country to achieve this aim. 

Funding for clubs will only be considered if the application specifically relates to older people. Grants are made available for sport or physical activity for older people and the overall club membership of applicants must be such that older people will be the beneficiaries of the grant monies. 

More information on the aims, key criteria and what can be funded is available here.  

The closing date for completed application forms is 12 noon on Friday, 24th February 2023. 

Apply online

Application forms are also available to download from the Age & Opportunity website.
