My Department administers a range of funding schemes and programmes to support the provision of youth services to young people throughout the country including those from disadvantaged communities. The overall budget allocation for the youth sector in my Department for 2019 is €61.791 million in current funding and a further €3.2 million has been allocated for capital funding.  The bulk of the funding is provided to and administered by the Education and Training Boards

The ETBs provide my Department with crucial assistance in the administration of funding schemes and are crucial in the compliance and governance processes.  There is a particular role in engaging with local youth services, e.g. annual progress reporting. Funding is provided to ETBs to support the employment of youth officers and for their own capacity building, particularly in the context of the development and roll-out of the new targeted funding scheme.  

In the following table, the 2019 figures are the allocations as the outturn is not yet available. It should be noted that there has been an administrative change in 2019 to the allocations for the City of Dublin Youth Services Board (CDYSB), as it had historically managed some projects outside of its area boundary.  These allocations have been re-profiled to the local ETB and the change does not affect the allocation to the project themselves.
