Communities Minister Caral Ni Chuilin has welcomed a £40m Executive allocation to councils to help address their financial pressures as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.

Speaking after yesterdays’s Executive meeting Minister Ni Chuilin said: “Councils here have faced significant financial challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and so this financial support will help to alleviate these losses thus ensuring Councils can positively contribute to local economic, social and environmental recovery, and help to play a very vital role in that recovery.

The Minister added: “Councils will be key in the delivery of public services throughout the period of recovery, in terms of economic and community development. It is critical that councils are supported financially in order to deliver these much needed public services in the months ahead and to enable them to support economic recovery.”

On 19 May 2020, Minister Hargey announced that the Executive was allocating £20.3 million to local councils to assist them with their financial pressures as a result of COVID-19. That funding helped ensure that local councils continued to provide essential services and supported those in need.
