Written answers (Question to Rural)

I can confirm that an application for funding has been received in respect of the school referred to by the Deputy.

Almost 500 applications were received by my Department under the programme in question, across three different funding measures. My officials have been assessing all of the applications received on a measure-by-measure basis. Final decisions on the measure relevant to the application in question will be made shortly, having regard to the overall level of demand and funding available for the programme as a whole.
