Written Answers - Grant Payments.
Mr. Ring Mr. Ring
248. Mr. Ring asked the Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs if there is a statutory requirement on Údarás na Gaeltachta to receive a formal grant application form before payment of a grant to an applicant. [39904/05]
Éamon Ó Cuív Éamon Ó Cuív
Éamon Ó Cuív: First, I should clarify that there is no statutory requirement on Údarás na Gaeltachta to receive a formal grant application form before payment of a grant to an applicant.
I understand from Údarás that grant application forms are available to applicants in order to assist them in compiling the essential data for assessment of an application. However, an application may also comprise documents submitted by or on behalf of an applicant which provide the necessary information. In either case, if further information is required following receipt of the initial grant application, all such data received are deemed to form part of the application.
Following grant approval, a written grant agreement is entered into by Údarás and the grantee. This agreement sets out the terms and conditions of the grant and forms the contract for grant payment. When submitting claims for payment, applicants may use the generic form avail able for this purpose or provide other acceptable documentation.
