Dormant Accounts Action Plan 2020

Published: 11 November 2019
From: Department of Rural and Community Development

The 2020 Action Plan allocates funding of €45.5 million to 43 measures to be delivered across 9 Government Departments. Money in the Dormant Accounts Fund can be used to fund measures that address economic, social, or educational disadvantage and to support people with a disability.

This Action Plan builds on previous plans and ensures continued support for individuals and organisations right across the country. The funding will assist the most vulnerable people in our society, promote social inclusion and help strengthen our communities over the coming years.

The level of funding through Dormant Accounts has grown substantially in recent years, for example, the €45.5 million approved here compares to €28.5 million approved in the 2016 Action Plan.
