I propose to take Questions Nos. 1040 and 1048 together.
The CLÁR programme provides funding for small scale infrastructure projects in designated rural areas that have experienced significant levels of de-population. This year, the supports provided through CLÁR have been tailored to help rural communities respond to the new COVID-19 environment, including through the addition of new funding measures.
I launched the 2020 CLÁR programme on 25th May, and the closing date for receipt of applications is 28 August 2020. The measures being funded under the programme this year are:
Measure 1: Schools/Community Safety Measures; Measure 2: Community Recreation Areas (new in 2020); Measure 3: Community Wellbeing Supports, comprising:
(a) Meals on Wheels and Linked Services (new in 2020)
(b) Mobility and Cancer Care Transport.
Only projects which are located or provide services in a designated CLÁR area are eligible for funding under the programme. The school referred to by the Deputy does not appear to be in a CLÁR area.
