Since 1999 Care Alliance Ireland has received annual funding, more recently based on a Grant Aid Agreement, from the Department of Health, and more recently from the HSE. Since 2008, we have secured multi-annual state funding from the Department of Rural and Community Development (and it's predecessors) under their funding scheme to support national organisations in the community and voluntary sector 2019-2022. We have also been successful in securing research and project funding from the Dormant Accounts Funds (2015, 2018) 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 to undertake seminars as well as towards the cost of coordinating a National Carer’s Week. Membership fees of €25 per member organisation are also a small source of funding.
