Since the National Lottery was established in 1986 over €6bn has been raised for Good Causes. However, the current process is causing significant difficulties for many charities who are struggling to be awarded funding.
Cii has highlighted issues and challenges within the current process including increased clarity around when the fund opens for applications; how the process works; what the scale of the grants are and a lack of consistency in administrative aspects of applications.
We are currently engaging with the Department of Public Expenditure and Indecon on a review of the system with a view to making some significant improvements.
