CASE Approvals - February 2006

13th March 2006

The following are funds approved up to the last day of the month. Please note that the sums relate to approvals, not payments. While finance may be approved, for a business investment for example, it does not guarantee that the development will go ahead. The approval simply shows that funds have been made available by CASE, but they will not be released until evidence is received that the project or activity has gone ahead.
