My Department's approach in relation to the Minor Works Grant is for it to be paid in either December or January of each school year. 

An announcement with regard to the timing of the payment of the Minor Works Grant for the current school year will be made in due course.

A total of just under €29m was paid out from my Department under the Minor Works Grant in 2018 for the school year 2018/19.
