The payment of a minor works grant totalling €45m for primary schools and special schools, as part of additional support in the context of Covid-19, and a once-off Covid-19 minor works funding for post-primary schools of €17m announced on the 13th of December 2021 is paid automatically to schools in the free scheme with no onus on schools to make an application. 

Applications from post-primary schools in the fee-charging sector will be considered on a case by case basis.
