On Budget Day, 8 October 2019, the gross expenditure allocation for the Department and the allocations by high-level expenditure programmes were published.  The detailed breakdown by subhead and by individual programme are yet to be finalised and will be published in the Revised Estimates Volume 2020 due to be published in mid-December 2019.

The Government remains committed to supporting our most vulnerable citizens abroad through the Emigrant Support Programme. It is also the prinicipal means though which we maintain and celebrate the deep ties of culture and heritage that connect us to our diaspora communities around the world.
