Sector Specific Covid-19 Supports

Bord Iascaigh Mhara: Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM), Ireland’s seafood development agency has launched a temporary voluntary fleet tie-up scheme designed to assist in adjusting the supply of fish coming onto a market that is currently depressed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and protect quota availability for later in the year. The new scheme, which complements the Government Covid-19 measures such as wage supports and loan arrangements already being provided, will offer support to vessel owners for fixed costs incurred while tied-up. Applications for August will be accepted up until July 20th.

Design and Craft Council Ireland: The Design & Craft Council Ireland delivers a range of support and development programmes, including webinars and FAQs in response to the impacts of COVID-19 on the design sector.
