Tipperary TD Noel Coonan has told Tipperary groups and organisations that the 2015 National Lottery Health Grants will go live on the Department’s website from Tuesday, February 17.

Deputy Coonan said the application forms will be available online or from his office.

“Applications must have a specific health related benefit and be specific to the Department of Health. Applications are accepted in hard copy only and applications received after the closing date will not be processed,” explained Deputy Coonan.

“Many Tipperary organisations have benefitted from previous rounds of funding towards very worthwhile projects to develop their facilities.

“The Department of Health National Lottery Discretionary Fund is aimed at community groups and voluntary organisations operating in Ireland providing health services to specific client groups, like people with an intellectual and / or physical disability, providing information and support for various disabilities and illnesses or groups with a specific interest.

“The closing date for applications is 12 noon on May 1, 2015. I am urging Tipperary organisations who fall within this remit to consider applying for funding,” he said.
