I am pleased that the additional funding of €1m announced by me in March 2019 to support the implementation of the National Drugs Strategy will be continued in 2020.

€240,000 of this funding will allow for the continuation of €10,000 in additional funding to each of the 24 Drug and Alcohol Task Forces in 2020.
