The funding and grants available from my Department are as provided in the Revised Estimates for Public Services 2018 (Vote 38 - Health)

My Department administered a National Lottery Discretionary Fund up to and including 2016 from which once-off grants were paid to community and voluntary organisations providing a range of health related services. This fund no longer operates.

The HSE operates a similar scheme and continues to provide grants to health agencies and other organisations from National Lottery Funds. Details of the scheme are available at:
