Dear Service Provider,pobal logo

The Community Childcare Subvention Plus (CCSP) Finance and Impact returns (FIRs) for August 2021 are available for completion on Pobal Online.

As advised previously, the DCEDIY would like to emphasise the importance for all community services to continue to complete and submit FIRs to Pobal.

These returns provide essential information that allows DCEDIY and Pobal to identify and help services to resolve problems. They also act as an informative tool for services in the effective planning of their financial future and highlight the real effect of closure due to Covid-19 on community services.

The deadline for submission of August 2021 returns is 5.00pm on Tuesday 28 September 2021.

If you require any assistance in completing the return please complete a service request on the EY HIVE, selecting the FIRs as the category and sub-category of the request.
