I propose to take Questions Nos. 132 and 133 together.

The Scheme to Support National Organisations in the Community and Voluntary Sector provides multi-annual funding to national organisations towards core costs associated with the provision of services. The new Scheme is intended to commence from 1 July 2014, on the basis of a competitive assessment process. I asked Pobal to undertake an assessment of the applications received and they have completed their analysis. I will shortly confirm allocations to the successful organisations.

The first Scheme ran from 2008 until June 2011, with the current Scheme commencing in July 2011. Therefore, as shown in the following table, a number of organisations were funded under the 2008-2011 Scheme only, others received funding under the 2011-2014 Scheme only, and several received funding under both Schemes.
