Additional Funding 2018/19 - PSP/TSP

Additional Funding 2018/19 - PSP/TSPPobalLogo

Dear Service Provider,

In recognition of the additional administration that providers were tasked with in 2019, particularly around Tusla re-registration and the transition to the National Childcare Scheme, the Department of Children and Youth Affairs has decided, as a once off measure, to provide additional funding to the 2018-19 Programme Support and Transition Support Payments.

The payment will be additional to the original Programme Support and Transition Payments already made in 2018-19 so there is no need for services that previously applied to reapply. In addition, services that did not apply for the previous Programme Support Payments can now apply for the additional funding. Those services will be contacted by Pobal in the New Year.

The additional funding to services will be processed this week and should be in providers’ bank accounts early next week.

Dear Service Provider,

The Compliance Guide for Service Providers, which was originally uploaded onto the PIP portal on 12th November 2019, has been amended. The amended version can be found under Compliance in the Resources section.

Minor amendments were made, which include the addition of page numbers and some slight rewording of text on page 11.

Please note these amendments are not the result of any changes to contract conditions or rules.
