Scheme of Capital Grants for Emergency Works
The main purpose of the Emergency Works Scheme is to ensure the availability of funding for urgent works to those schools that are most in need of resources as a result of an emergency situation or on receipt of an enrolment application from a special needs pupil.
An emergency is a situation which poses an immediate risk to health, life, property or the environment, which is sudden, unforeseen and requires immediate action and in the case of a school, if not corrected, would prevent the school or part thereof from opening.
How to apply
Primary and post-primary schools requiring emergency works to be undertaken must apply under this scheme by completing the online Emergency Works Application Form available through the Esinet system and which can be found on the following link: https://www.esinet.ie/portal/login.init.action and EWS applications can be found within the Esinet system under the tab labelled ‘Devolved Projects’.
The purpose of this scheme is solely for unforeseen emergencies and to provide funding to facilitate inclusion and access for special needs pupils. It is not intended that this scheme will be used to supplement previous applications under other schemes that have not been successful in securing funding. All relevant and supporting information in relation to an Emergency Works application must be provided in order to support your claim for emergency grant aid. All applications will be dealt with on an individual basis.
In all of the circumstances, please read this Circular Letter carefully before completing an application form.
