Know Where You Stand

It’s been a challenging period for everyone and Budget 2021 seeks to steer a course that will protect people as COVID-19 continues to devastate our lives and livelihoods. Investment is at an all time high to meet changing needs and to step up our response to challenges in Health, Eduction and Climate. A contingency fund of over €5 billion will be used strategically throughout the year to respond to changing needs in Health and Social Protection and in sterling Economic recovery.
