I announced on the 28 April 2022 a new funding measure, as an advance stage of the Multi-Annual Rural Water Programme 2022-2025, for the waste water collection and treatment needs of villages and settlements that do not have access to public waste water services. 

To fund this measure, an allocation of €50 million has been committed under the National Development Plan up to 2025.  For 2023, my Department has a capital provision of €35m for the Rural Water Programme, including this new measure.

An independent Expert Panel has critically evaluated each application and based on a report from the Panel, recommendations for funding will be made shortly.
