I propose to take Questions Nos. 197 and 198 together.

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.

A list, in tabular form, of all the organisations that received lottery funding in 2016 is available on my Department's website at: https://health.gov.ie/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/221216-Final-list-of-successful-lottery-applicants-for-DoH-website.pdf

The Deputy should note that the HSE operates a similar scheme and continues to provide grants to health agencies and other organisations from National Lottery funds.

I have asked the Health Service Executive to reply directly to the Deputy regarding funding paid to organisations in County Galway and County Roscommon in each of the years 2016 to 2018 and to date 2019.
