Written answers (Question to Children)

I do not have the information sought by the Deputy with regard to funding allocated to Tusla in County Louth for the years in question. Funding is not allocated to Tusla on a county-by-county basis.

I was pleased to announce in Budget 2022 that Tusla will be allocated €899m for 2022, which is an increase of €41m over the amount allocated in Budget 2021 (€858m). Tusla was allocated €817m under Budget 2020 and €786m under Budget 2019. 

I recently issued my Performance Statement to Tusla outlining the overall parameters of Tusla's financial resources, and signalling my priorities for the coming year in accordance with section 44 of the Child and Family Agency Act 2013. In response to this, Tusla will prepare its annual Business Plan for 2022 in accordance with section 46 of the Act. This outlines the proposed activities for the year and the details of the proposed allocation of total financial resources.
