*The Trading Online Voucher Scheme is demand-led and, as such, funding provided to Local Enterprise Offices is based on the value of approved ‘vouchers’ and costs incurred in administering the Scheme.

**Digital Skills for Citizens Scheme funding is directly linked to the number of citizens who received training. Since the scheme commenced in 2017, some 2,067 citizens in Galway and 2,387 citizens in Roscommon have received training.

In relation to the agencies under the aegis of my Department, this is an operational matter for each agency. The Department will request the relevant bodies to reply directly to the Deputy with the information requested in respect of their organisations.
