On 10 June 2020, the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs announced a major funding
package to facilitate the reopening of early learning and care (ELC) and school-age childcare
(SAC) services. In accordance with the Government Roadmap for Reopening Society and
Business, and guided by the expert advice of the Health Protection Surveillance Centre
(HSPC), ELC and SAC services can begin to resume from 29th June, 2020.
The purpose of the COVID-19 Capital Grant (€14.2m) is to contribute towards the capital costs
associated with the reopening of Early Learning and Care (ELC) and School Age Childcare (SAC)
Services because of the easing of some of the government restrictions imposed as a result of the
pandemic.
