Department of Education and Skills
494. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills when the next instalment of the PPE and cleaning grant will issue; if this is the second instalment of two or the second instalment of three; and the amount this instalment of the grant entails. [38153/20]
My Department's approach is to align the grant payments to each of the three terms of the school year.
Grant payments will reflect the duration of each school term and other factors e.g. the PPE grant payments for the first term included provision for once off set up costs for installing sanitizer dispensing units.
The next tranche of grant payments will issue in early January.
