Written answers (Question to Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport)

Under the Sports Capital Programme the Department provides funding at local, regional and national level to sporting clubs and organisations, voluntary and community organisations, local authorities and, in certain circumstances, schools/colleges towards the provision of sporting facilities and the purchase of sporting equipment.

It will be open to any organisation with a suitable project to apply for funding under the next round of the Programme subject to the terms and conditions that will apply. Officials in my Department are currently making the necessary arrangements with a view to launching a new round of the Sports Capital Programme early this year.
