The Local Youth Club Grant Scheme (LYCGS) supports voluntary youth club activities at local level. The Scheme, which provides grant-aid towards the costs of running clubs, is part-funded by the proceeds of the National Lottery.
Funding for the Scheme is provided by the Youth Affairs Unit (YAU), Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA) and administered locally by Education & Training Boards (formerly VECs) on the Department’s behalf. ETBs advertise the Scheme locally on an annual basis outlining the purpose of the grant and the eligibility criteria.
