The third stage in the selection process under the New Funding Model for organisations corefunded by Foras na Gaeilge is now complete, with details of the successful organisations to be announced on Friday, 17 January 2014.
19 organisations are currently receive corefunding under the existing model, however in the new model which is to be introduced from 01 July 2014, funding will only be made available to six lead organisations. The new model is intended to provide better services at a local level and to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of all expenditure.
The selection process consisted of three stages, stage one required interested parties to express their interest and complete an application form detailing their work and organisational structure. Stage two required applicants who were successful in stage one, to make a detailed proposal which was to be submitted to Foras na Gaeilge by 06 December 2013.
Not all organisations made it to the last round, in which a structured interview was held with the CEO and Chairperson of the organisation. These interviews were held in Dublin on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, and details of the lead organisations are to be announced on Friday of next week.
For those who are unsuccessful in their applications, their funding from Foras na Gaeilge will be discontinued from 30 June 2014.
Most of the organisations who now find themselves competing for funding, are almost wholly dependent on funding from Foras na Gaeilge and to terminate this funding source will close these organisations.
