Playing Outside Grant 2021 – application window extended to 5.00pm on Friday 10 September 2021
The closing date for Playing Outside Grant 2021 has been extended to 5.00pm on Friday 10 September 2021.
If you have not applied for this grant on Early Years Hive we would urge you to do so as soon as possible.
Please also note that the Playing Outside Grant 2021, can now be used to fund a CO2 monitor for your service.
CO2 monitors can provide a useful indicator that areas or rooms may not be adequately ventilated.
They can be used to judge ventilation in a room, taking into account the impact of activities, outdoor weather and window openings.
If you have already applied for this grant, you can use the funding to purchase a CO2 monitor, or, if you have purchased a CO2 monitor in the eligible expenditure window (1 June – 30 November 2021) this will now be counted as eligible expenditure under this grant.
You do not need to contact Pobal to communicate this change.
If you have not made an application under the Playing Outside Grant 2021 and intend to purchase a CO2 monitor with grant monies, please select VENTILATION from the list of eligible expenditure on the grant application.
