Dáil Eireann Debate
75. Mr. Lowry asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Health and Children if a scheme exists within her Department for a group (details supplied) in County Tipperary; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [17771/05]
Minister of State at the Department of Health and Children (Mr. S. Power): The Department of Health and Children provides funding to voluntary organisations under a national lottery funded grant scheme. This funding is discretionary. A set protocol is in place in the Department for dealing with applications or requests for grants from discretionary national lottery funds. An application form is made available to any individual, group or agency which requests a grant.
When the completed application form is received in the Department, it is registered in the finance unit and forwarded to the relevant services division for its assessment, evaluation and recommendation. All applications are considered in the context of the recommendation and the overall level of funds available to the Tánaiste, and each organisation is then informed of the decision reached in regard to its application.
