eSPSV21 closes as all €15m funding allocated

30 September 2021

The eSPSV Grant Scheme 2021 is now closed and no further applications will be considered. The Department of Transport has advised that arising from the success of the Scheme and the exhaustion of its €15m funding allocation, the eSPSV Grant Scheme has now closed.


NTA will continue to administer all applications already received.


Provision for closure of the Scheme is set out in the associated Information Guide and Terms and Conditions where the ‘Scheme End Date’ is defined as the earlier of:

(a) such date as may be notified by the NTA on its website;

(b) the date there is no longer any amount available under the 2021 Available Funding to be made available as a eSPSV Grant; or

(c) 31 December 2021.


A Department spokesperson said  “the Department has funded an eSPSV scheme in previous years and there is an expectation that a new scheme will reopen as normal in 2022”.
