The Social Innovation Regeneration Fund – Closes 26th of April

UPDATE: As of 1st February 2024, Rethink Ireland has confirmed two changes to the Social Innovation Regeneration Fund as follows:

  1. The introduction of a Strand 2 for smaller grants: Rethink Ireland has increased the overall Fund budget and introduced a Strand 2 for smaller grants. Applicants need to secure philanthropic funding commitments to make an application to the Fund, and the minimum philanthropic funding to be secured for the new Strand 2 is at least €100,000 over two years (compared to at least €200,000 for Strand 1).

  2. The extension of the deadline for applications to the Fund: The original deadline for the applications to the Fund was 16th February, 2024. This deadline has now been extended until 26th April, 2024 to allow new eligible applicants sufficient time to prepare their applications. Note that applicants can submit their applications at any time before the deadline of 26th April.

The text below has been updated accordingly. We’ve also included responses to some questions that have been raised by prospective applicants.
