Sinn Féin MLA Liz Kimmins has welcomed the announcement from the Finance Minister that more than £20 million will be made available for the community and voluntary sector from the Dormant Accounts Fund.

“I welcome the launch of the Dormant Accounts Fund by Finance Minister Conor Murphy today. 

“This £20.5m fund will provide funding to the voluntary, community and social enterprise sectors with grants of up to £100,000.
