€10m Sector Stability Fund in New Government Resilience and Recovery Plan

Posted on 24 Feb 2021

Yesterday, the Government released its new COVID-19 strategy, "COVID-19 Resilience and Recovery 2021: The Path Ahead".

Contained in the plan is a further top-up of €10 million to the Sector Stability Fund, made available to enable critical services to continue being delivered to vulnerable groups.

This builds on the €45m allocated last year to the COVID-19 Stability Fund for Community and Voluntary Organisations, Charities and Social Enterprises, which The Wheel and a coalition of representative bodies in the sector worked hard to secure. The fund was originally established in May 2020 to provide immediate, short term cash flow to qualifying organisations which provide critical services to those most vulnerable in society. 

Note: full application details / deadlines have yet to be announced.
