In respect of the four agencies under the remit of my Department, Irish Water Safety and the Charities Regulator do not provide funding to groups. The Western Development Commission provides investments and loans to small and medium enterprises, but does not distribute grant funding to projects. Pobal administers a number of schemes on behalf of Government Departments, including my Department (details provided above). Funding for those schemes Pobal administers for other Departments is a matter for those Departments.
