Alongside the Confidence and Supply Agreement, the UK Government committed to providing £1 billion of additional funding to the Northern Ireland Departments, which is released to the Northern Ireland Grant through the usual estimates process.

The Government has so far allocated £763 million to the Northern Ireland Block Grant, including £333m for the current financial year, through Parliament’s approval in the normal estimates process.

This funding is to the benefit of all communities across the whole of Northern Ireland and is not broken down into individual constituencies.
