Since 1999 Care Alliance Ireland has received annual state funding, currently based on a Section 39 Service Arrangement with the HSE. Since 2008, we have secured multi-annual state funding under The Scheme to Support National Organisations, funded by the Government of Ireland through the Department of Rural and Community Development. We have also been successful in securing research and project funding from the Dormant Accounts Funds (2015, 2018, 2020) Health Research Board(2016-2018), the Combat Poverty Agency (2007), The Citizens Information Board (2009), The Department of Health and Children (2009) and the Irish Research Council for Humanities and Social Sciences (IRCHSS, 2009), and the EU Commission (2010, 2012, 2016, 2018) We also receive occasional small scale funding from the National Lottery. Membership fees of €25 per member organisation are also a small source of funding.
