Written answers (Question to Housing)

Please find below allocation and expenditure in respect of Traveller accommodation for each of the local authorities for the past five years, inclusive of the spend to 19 November, 2020. In 2020, to facilitate ease of access to funding my Department is not allocating specific budgets to individual local authorities. Instead, it is open to all local authorities to apply for and drawdown funds at any time through the year and this is actively encouraged by my Department. The Traveller-specific budget for 2020 is €14.5m.
