Parent and Toddler Funding: Changes to criteria for 2021
|DCEDIY is making two changes to P&T funding criteria in 2021.|
1) It is acknowledged that many services who closed due to Covid may no longer have current insurance cover in force. To assist existing groups applying for financial support, it has been decided that the submission of evidence of current insurance as an application criteria will be waived for 2021 only. However, a funding condition will be included in the letter & Grant Agreement to any subsequent successful applicants that proof of appropriate and current insurance be submitted within one month of receipt of grant monies.
(Note that the arrangements for new groups are unchanged i.e. they are also eligible to apply without insurance but must submit proof of same within one month of grant payment).
2) As an expanded measure to assist existing groups with the upfront costs of re-establishing following Covid uncertainties, the maximum contribution that will be available to (existing) groups towards insurance, rent or minor refurbishment, will be increased from 30% to 50% of total funding. This is a once-off measure for 2021 in light of the exceptional circumstances associated with Covid-19.
