The tables detail the funding allocated to each Local Authority under the Town and Village Renewal Scheme in 2017 and 2018 and the amount paid to date to each Local Authority by my Department.

It should be noted that projects under the Town and Village Renewal Scheme can typically take 12 to 18 months to complete. Interim payments are only made when Local Authorities reach a certain threshold of expenditure on projects, and final payments are made on full completion of the project.

All Local Authorities were requested to submit their final outturn in respect of their 2017 allocations by the end of June this year and my officials are currently working on closing out the 2017 programme.

The allocations under the 2018 scheme were announced on 5th October 2018 and final funding drawdowns can therefore be expected to run into the first half of 2020.
