Applications for funding under the national lottery-funded 2006 sports capital programme were invited through advertisements in the Press on November 27th and 28th last. The closing date for receipt of applications was January 20th 2006. All applications received before the deadline are currently being evaluated against the programme's assessment criteria, which are outlined in the guidelines, terms and conditions of the programme. While the deliberative process of the assessment of applications is ongoing, it is not considered appropriate to provide a listing of applications or information relating to individual applications. I intend to announce the grant allocations for the programme as soon as possible after the assessment process has been completed.
