We have a number of funding schemes that support our main priorities, both at home and abroad.
Irish Aid, Ireland’s official aid programme, supports a range of funding schemes that help to improve the lives of some of the world’s poorest people.
The emphasis of the Emigrant Support Programme is on supporting culturally sensitive, frontline welfare services, targeted at the most vulnerable members of our overseas communities.
The Reconciliation Fund supports work to build peace in Northern Ireland and improve relations between North and South and between Ireland and Britain.
