As the Deputy will be aware, CLÁR is an important part of the Government’s Action Plan for Rural Development and focuses on areas which have suffered the greatest levels of population decline.

The table below details the amount of funding allocated and paid to each Local Authority to date under the CLÁR Scheme in the years 2017 and 2018, and the payments expressed as a percentage of the allocations.

It should be noted that while Local Authorities were the applicants under certain measures funded under the CLÁR programme, other measures were targeted at community-based groups, such as first responders. Full details of the funding allocated to approved projects in each county are available on my Department’s website at www.drcd.gov.ie/clar/.
