Mr. Durkan Mr. Durkan
Mr. Durkan asked the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government if a request has been received from a group (details supplied) in County Kildare for funding; if he will give favourable consideration to same; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [41608/06]
Mr. N. Ahern Mr. N. Ahern
Mr. N. Ahern: I assume that the Question refers to assistance from my Department under the Voluntary and Co-operative Housing Capital Funding Schemes. My Department’s involvement with the schemes relates primarily to the provision of funds for individual projects. The administration of the schemes, and the certification that particular projects comply with the terms of the schemes, are the responsibility of the local authority.
In relation to the case referred to in the Question, no application for funding has yet been received by my Department from Kildare County Council who are responsible for the administration of these schemes in their area.
