PIP Notification 28th November 2016

Community Childcare Subvention (CCS) Programme.  CCS 2016/2017 Band Approval

Pobal will start to upload the CCS band approvals onto PIP on the 25th November 2016.  They will be fully uploaded by close of business Monday, 28th November 2016– please wait until then to check them.

The CCS band appeals process will be open between Monday 5th December and Friday 20th January 2017. Please ensure you submit supporting documentation with your appeal.

Please do not try to submit appeals before Monday, 5th December as PIP will not permit you to do so.  

Q: What if I already submitted supporting documentation with the registration?

Please check the registration on PIP:

-       A comment in your registration stating ‘DSP documents have been submitted with this registration & will be reviewed shortly’ means that the documentation will be checked by Pobal staff over the coming weeks and you don’t have to do anything until contacted. i.e. you don’t have to submit an appeal. Please review your dashboard on the PIP portal for updates.

-       If there is no comment then the band approved will apply, unless an appeal is submitted.

An appeals guideline is available at the following link to help you through the appeals process.
