Written answers (Question to Minister for Health)

My Department administers a National Lottery Discretionary Fund, from which once-off grants are paid to community and voluntary organisations that provide a range of health-related services. If an organisation wishes to make an application for National Lottery Funding, it should send in a formal application. Detailed procedures along with the application form are set out on the Department's website, www.doh.ie. The Health Service Executive also provides funding to numerous groups and organisations, details of which are set out in its annual accounts, which are available on the Executive’s website, www.hse.ie. The closing date for applications for the HSE lottery fund has now passed.
