In respect of the four agencies under the remit of my Department, Irish Water Safety and the Charities Regulator do not provide funding to groups. The Western Development Commission provides investments and loans to small and medium enterprises, but does not distribute grant funding to projects. Pobal administers a number of schemes on behalf of Government Departments, including my Department (details above). However, funding for those schemes administered by Pobal on behalf of those other Departments is a matter for the Departments concerned.
