My Department provides funding towards the regeneration of Dublin’s North East Inner City (NEIC) to support the implementation of the Mulvey Report “Creating a Brighter Future” and the NEIC Strategic Plan 2020 – 2022.

Funding of €6.5m will be provided by my Department in 2020 towards this initiative.

The funding allocation for the NEIC Initiative is decided on a year-to-year basis as part of the Estimates process. Once notified of the NEIC Initiative’s funding allocation for a given year, the NEIC Programme Implementation Board (PIB) invites proposals for the distribution of the funding which are then considered via a sub-group structure and submitted to the PIB for approval. This process is currently underway. A full breakdown of how the overall allocation is distributed within the NEIC will therefore be available at year end.
