Sport Energy Support Scheme

Sport Energy Support Scheme

The second phase of the Sport Energy Support Scheme is now open via Local Sports Partnerships.

In 2022, the Government provided an additional investment of €35 million to support sporting organisations with the rising energy costs associated with the provision of sport e.g., indoor activity in winter, the provision of outdoor floodlighting etc. To date €19m has been distributed to Sport Ireland Recognised National Governing Bodies of Sport.

Phase 2 of the above scheme will target community owned sports facilities which do not currently qualify for TBESS or other Government support schemes through DRCD, Local Authorities etc.

Westmeath Sports Partnership is now seeking expressions of interest from facilities that qualify under this phase. Clubs or facilities affiliated to Sport Ireland recognised National Governing Bodies should access support directly through their NGB.

General cost of living increases such as rising costs in accommodation, rent, rates or labour costs are not eligible. Fuel costs associated with machinery, vehicles, travel or transport do not qualify.

Full eligibility details and expression of interest form can be found through this link:

Closing Date for Expressions of Interest is 5pm Wednesday 24th May.
