Funding for voluntary organisations

From: Department of Rural and Community Development

How funding for voluntary organisations works

The Scheme to Support National Organisations (SSNO) provides funding to voluntary organisations in Ireland. Organisations that want to apply for funding must focus on providing supports and improving the lives of disadvantaged people.

How to apply

The current round of funding runs from 1 July 2016 until 30 June 2019. The 2019-2022 scheme is now closed. Applications are currently going through an appraisal process and final decisions will be communicated to applicants in late May/early June 2019.
