Written answers (Question to Rural)

The company referenced delivers the Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP 2018 - 2022) in Galway County. The table below contains data in relation to grants awarded to Local Community Groups and Social Enterprises by the company in the areas referenced by the Deputy. Grants were not available to Local Community Groups under the previous programme (SICAP 2015 -17) and therefore a nil amount appears for 2017.
