The information sought is set out in the table.

The original RAPID programme was closed to applications from 2011 onwards. Spend in the year 2016 of €0.032m reflects my Department’s contractual commitments under existing RAPID projects, mainly under the Sports Capital Scheme.

The nationwide re-cast RAPID programme and the Communities Facilities Scheme were launched for the first time in 2017. €65,000 was provided to each local authority area under each scheme, a total of €130,000 for each area and €4m across the country.

In 2018, the re-cast RAPID programme and the Communities Facilities Scheme were replaced by the Community Enhancement Programme (CEP), which received total funding of €13m.

In March this year I allocated €4.5m to the CEP and in May I allocated a further €500,000 ring-fenced for Men's Sheds (& Women's Sheds). Applications are being processed by LCDCs at present and as of 30th June no payments had been issued to the Local Authorities.
