The final date for the submission of applications under Call 2 was the 29th May.  A large number of proposals were received, with every local authority submitting at least one application for URDF support. 

Because of the nature of the URDF programme the proposals are very complex, and each will require detailed assessment.  The assessment process will take place over the coming months with the intention that a new tranche of approved proposals, which will augment the existing pipeline of projects from Call 1 and contribute to the achievement of Programme for Government commitments and the objectives

of the National Planning Framework and Project Ireland 2040, will be announced later in the year.
