Written answers (Question to Public)

The revised NDP incorporates a total funding envelope of €165 billion over 2021-2030. This is set out in detail in Chapter 4 of the NDP, which provides the Gross Voted capital allocations for each area for the period 2021-2025, with subsequent years to be added on a rolling basis.

Of this total funding €136 billion will be sourced from the Exchequer. The Exchequer’s sources of funding are a matter for the Minister for Finance as managed by the Office of the Revenue Commissioners and the National Treasury Management Agency.

Additional funding of approximately €29 billion is estimated to come from Non-Exchequer sources including commercial semi-states, Irish Water and Universities, which is funded through commercial activities, financing and own resources.
