The  Rural Social Scheme (RSS) is sponsored by the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection. Pobal carries out a payroll function, on behalf of the Department, and operates a help-desk facility for Local Development Companies and Údarás na Gaeltachta, who are the implementing bodies. Pobal also has the responsibility for developing and implementing performance indicators for the scheme.
The aims of the scheme are to provide:
• Services to rural communities that use the skills and talents available among low-income farmers and fishing communities
• Income support to low-income farmers and fishing communities who are in receipt of specified social-welfare payments.
