My Department, supported by Area Development Management — ADM — Limited co-ordinates the implementation of the RAPID programme. It is a matter for each of the other Departments to report on progress on its implementation of RAPID and details of funding for the proposals that fall within its remit. Reports for all Departments can be accessed on ADM's website at www.adm.ie.

My Department has made allocations to the following projects from the Tallaght area implementation team plans:
