Written answers (Question to Rural)

The Scheme to Support National Organisations (SSNO) provides multi annual funding to national organisations in respect of core costs associated with the provision of their services. The current scheme commenced on 1 July 2016 and runs until 30 June 2019.  The scheme is administered by Pobal on behalf of the Department of Rural and Community Development.

The Scheme to Support National Organisations in the Community and Voluntary Sector (SSNO) is a key element of my Department's support for the role of the sector in contributing to the development of strong and vibrant civil society and in improving outcomes for those most disadvantaged.

The allocation for the duration of the scheme 2016-2019 is almost €16.7m and the total amount spent in 2018 was €5,909,190. Funding has been allocated to 71 national community and voluntary organisations under the scheme, as set out in the following table.
