Capital Grants for 2020 have been announed:

Programmes will be open for applications from early learning and care and school age childcare services in February 2020.

The Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappone TD, is pleased to announce the details of the 2020 Early Learning and Care and School Age Capital programmes. The Minister has secured €8.1 million for childcare capital grants across 2020.

€7.2 million of this will be used for the Early Learning and Care and School Age Capital programmes, an increase of over €1 million on the 2019 capital programme for this sector.

The programmes will be open for applications from early learning and care and school age childcare services in February 2020.

Service providers will be invited to apply for funding under the following strands:

Strand A: Creation of new places for 0-3 year olds - €5.5 million (max. €50,000 per grant).

Strand B: Works required for regulatory compliance for community services – €1 million (max. €1,200 per grant).

Strand C: Creation of new school age places - €700,000 (max. €20,000 per grant).

The funding objective is the continued expansion of early learning and care places for 0-3 year olds, and to create additional places for school age childcare.

Funding is also being made available to support community/not-for-profit early learning and care services in addressing issues identified during the process of Tusla re-registration.
