Written answers (Question to Health)

My Department administered a National Lottery Discretionary Fund up to and including 2016 from which once-off grants were paid to community and voluntary organisations providing a range of health related services. My Department no longer operates a National Lottery Fund.

However, the HSE operates a similar scheme and continues to provide grants to health agencies and other organisations from National Lottery funds.
