The improvement and maintenance of regional and local roads is the statutory responsibility of the relevant local authority in accordance with the provisions of Section 13 of the Roads Act 1993. Works on those roads are funded from the Council's own resources supplemented by State road grants.

Details of the regional and local road grant payments for 2018 for specific grant projects are outlined in the regional and local road grant booklet which is available in the Dáil Library.

The current allocations and drawdown to end of June for specific grant schemes this year can be seen in the following table:
