In 2019, funding of €38.027m was allocated under SICAP for provision to the Local Development Companies that deliver the programme.

Allocations in respect of 2020 will be finalised in the context of the Revised Estimates 2020 to be published by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform in December.

However, in the recent budget I secured some additional funding for use across the Community Development Programme.  I expect therefore that the 2020 SICAP funding may include a slight increase relative to 2019, the details of which are currently under discussion within my Department.
