Heather Humphreys said : "Many of the successful projects I am announcing today will see vacant and derelict town centre building such as old banks, Garda stations and convents transformed into community, cultural and arts spaces. There is also a strong focus on remote working projects in this round of funding and I am pleased to see that a number of counties have set out ambitious marketing plans aimed at attracting remote workers to relocate”. The 99 projects covered by the latest round of funding will be administered by the local authorities, who applied for the funds last year. A spokesperson for the department said it was down to the local authorities to draw down the funding and then deliver each project. It is expected most should be delivered within 18 months. The Government said since the introduction of the scheme in 2016, almost €94m has been approved for more than 1,300 projects across the country. The first progress report on Our Rural Future found that of the actions with a due date in 2021, a total of 137, or 78%, were completed at the time of publication.
