The Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappone TD, is pleased to announce additional awards of €75,989.06 to organisations that received funding under the 2018 Innovation Fund. This will support four further existing projects in any outstanding work remaining from their original application in 2018.
The Innovation Fund was launched in April 2018 by the Department of Children and Youth Affairs to test new prevention and early intervention projects. The funding measure is supported through Dormant Accounts Funding and was developed to allow providers within the child and family sectors highlight innovations they are delivering to improve outcomes for children.
In awarding the funding Minister Zappone said:
