HSE National Lottery Grants 2018

The HSE has been allocated National Lottery Funding for distribution to community based groups and voluntary organisations under the Respite Care Grant Scheme and the National Lottery Grant Scheme. Groups and organisations involved in the provision of Health and Personal Social Services can apply for once off funding of between €500 and €10,000 for suitable projects.

Completed Application Forms must be returned to the  local Community Healthcare Organisation (CHO)  

Please ensure that your application is submitted to the correct CHO, as submission to the wrong CHO may result in your application not being processed.

Closing Date for Applications is 5pm on Thursday 7th June 2018

Lottery Application and Grant Aid Agreement Form

  • Applicants will be advised as to the outcome of their application no later than Thursday, August 30th 2018 
  • Please note the following will apply in the case of all applications received:
  • Applications will be accepted from organisations both within the Community Healthcare Organisation (CHO) Area and those who geographically lie outside of the CHO but provide services to clients residing in the CHO.
  • Applications that have major on-going revenue implications which includes the employment of staff, capital funding  and running will not be considered
  • Applications must be for once off projects that can be completed within the year of application (excluding respite)
  • Applications for projects which are already covered by HSE Funding through and SLA/Grant Aid Agreement or otherwise will not be considered
  • There will be an upper limit (to be decided based on number of valid applications received) of funding awarded to an individual organisation.  
  • Where multiple applications are received by an individual organisation that same upper limit will apply. 
  • Therefore it is recommended that an organisation intending to submit multiple applications should consider this upper limit and prioritise on that basis.
  • It is envisaged that generally individual grant allocations will be in the range of €500.00 - €10,000.00 approximately.
  • An upper limit of €10,000 for applications relating to Transport Initiatives will apply

Organisations are reminded that by making an Application for Lottery funding they are committing to the terms and conditions of the HSE’s Grant Aid Agreement and are required to be compliant with those minimum Financial and Governance requirements, as outlined in the Application process
