Applicants will be advised as to the outcome of their application no later than Thursday 31.08.2017


Please note the following will apply in the case of all applications received:

  • Applications will be accepted from organisations both within the Community Healthcare (CHO) Area and those who geographically lie outside of CHO but provide services to clients residing in CHO.
  • Successful Applicants will be required to complete a Grant Aid Agreement with the HSE and be compliant with minimum Financial and Governance requirements.
  • Applications that have major on-going revenue implications which includes the employment of staff, capital funding  and running will not be considered
  • Applications must be for once off projects that can be completed within the year of application (excluding respite)
  • Applications for projects which are already covered by HSE Funding through and SLA/Grant Aid Agreement or otherwise will not be considered
  • There will be an upper limit (to be decided based on number of valid applications received) of funding awarded to an individual organisation.   Where multiple applications are received by an individual organisation that same upper limit will apply.  Therefore it is recommended that an organisation intending to submit multiple applications should consider this upper limit and prioritise on that basis.
  • It is envisaged that generally individual grant allocations will be in the range of €500.00 – €10,000.00 approximately.
  • An upper limit of €10,000 for applications relating to Transport Initiatives will apply
