Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme 2020

The Outdoor Recreation Infrastructure Scheme provides funding for the development of new and existing outdoor recreational infrastructure in rural areas, such as cycleways, walking trails, blueways and mountain access routes. It helps to make use of the resources of the countryside that contribute to healthy active lifestyles while building on the economic and tourism potential of the area, and so are to the benefit of the both local communities and tourist visitors alike.

Eligible Activities include development of new trails, walkways, cycleways, local greenways, blueways or other recreational facilities or extensions to those already established.

Ineligible Activities: Purchase of land, Refurbishment or construction of buildings, Sports grounds, playgrounds and Multi Use Gaming Areas (MUGAs), walking or running tracks located in confined spaces or marked street trails, walkways and cycleways within towns and villages.
