Reopening Support Payment to Early Years & SAC providers

The Reopening Support Payment (RSP) is a one-off payment to Early Learning and Care and School Age Childcare providers to: support them in meeting the reopening guidelines; support children remaining in ‘play pods’ in order to reduce the potential for COVID-19 to spread; and help them meet additional staffing needs during the reopening period.

The application process is now open and is available on the Early Years Platform (HIVE).

The closing date for applications is 5pm, Friday 28th August.

Services with queries should contact the Early Years Provider Centre at eypc@pobal.ie or raise a service request on the Early Years Platform (HIVE).
