The Initiative has funding of €5.40m for the period 2010-14. The Board of Pobal is the contractual entity for the Initiative and it has a staff team in place to manage and support the Initiative and its structures.
Pobal has established a Steering Group to implement the overall strategic, decision making and operational direction of the Initiative. It comprises an independent chair, representatives from the respective funders, sector experts, and Pobal representation. The Steering Group is underpinned by two sub groups – an Appraisal & Development Working Group (task completed) and an Evaluation & Learning Expert Advisory Group. Evaluation is a key strategic component of the Initiative and in July 2011 the Steering Group appointed a team of evaluators, under the direction of Dr.Kieran McKeown, to undertake a formative evaluation of the Initiative.
A Learning Community comprised of representatives from local projects and members of their consortia, the Initiative evaluators and Pobal staff was set up to share and disseminate learning from project implementation and to collectively influence policy. Interface and reporting mechanisms have been developed to ensure on-going linkage between the relevant structures in line with an agreed communications plan.
