The Government's Chief Whip and the Minister of State for the Gaeltacht, Jack Chambers today announced that his Department is now accepting applications from eligible Gaeltacht host families wishing to register for the first time to provide accommodation for the Irish language college system, and who wish to avail of the new increased €6,000 start-up grant.

Along with the almost 20% overall increase to the daily grant payable by the Department to accommodation providers already registered under the Department's Scéim na bhFoghlaimeoirí Gaeilge, this specific measure was recently announced in further support of the Irish language summer-college system. 

The purpose of this increased grant, which is worth up to €6,000 or 80% of the eligible cost whichever is less, is to encourage new eligible Gaeltacht host families to provide accommodation for students attending Irish language colleges.
