As part of the Dormant Accounts Fund Action Plan for 2021, the Department of Social Protection is inviting applications from community and voluntary organisations who wish to support and improve the employment opportunities (incl. self-employment opportunities) for People with Disabilities.

There are two key objectives of this funding:

  2. To support potential employers to provide employment for People with Disabilities.

An overall budget of €5 million has been made available. The Department of Social Protection has appointed Pobal to administer this grant programme on their behalf. The maximum grant that applicants can seek is €200,000.
