Update from DCYA re capital funding
Early Years Capital 2017
A large volume of applications were received under the Early Years Capital 2017 programme. In light of this demand, the Department extended the deadline for applications and is also pursuing the possibility of securing additional funding over and above the €4m allocated to this scheme.
Pobal has now completed appraisal of applications made under the scheme, and provided the Department with recommendations in this regard on Friday last, June 23rd. Early Years Unit is currently reviewing these recommendations, to enable Minister Zappone to approve funding shortly. School Age Capital 2017
