The Community Services Programme (CSP) transferred to my Department on 1 January 2018. It supports community organisations to provide local services through a social enterprise model. Funding is provided towards the costs of employing a manager and a specified number of full-time employees(FTEs). Almost €47 million will be available to support community organisations under the programme in 2020.

CSP funding is current with no capital expenditure. The 2016-2019 allocations and outturns are set out in Table 1 below. This allocation also includes the fee paid to Pobal to administer the CSP on behalf of my Department.

Table 2 below sets out the number of organisations, managers and full-time equivalents (FTEs) per County for 2016 - 2018 and with an estimate for 2019.
