We wanted to let you know about the July stimulus funding package available to the sector which has just been approved by cabinet as soon as we could.
Attached to this email is a press release from the Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA) in relation to Minister Roderic O’Gorman announcing a funding package of measures to support the Early Learning and Care and School-Age Childcare sector.
Also, the contracts for 2020/21 Programme Year will be published by Pobal on Monday. The DCYA had to wait for finalisation of the Employment Wage Subsidy Scheme (EWSS) before finalising the contracts.
