Written answers (Question to Transport)

The Large Scale Sport Infrastructure Fund opened for applications on 19th November 2018 and the closing date for receipt of applications was 17th April.

72 applications were received in total. Details of all applications received have been published on the Department's website along with the evaluation procedures and guidelines.

Work is underway in assessing applications but in view of the detailed information contained in each application, it will take a number of months to have all of this work complete. Accordingly, as I advised the Deputy last May, I expect that it will be towards the end of this year before any allocations are announced.
