To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport to which organisations New Opportunities funding has been distributed in each Westminster constituency; and which projects were funded. (78548)

The New Opportunities Fund (NOF) has made 1,831 lottery grants, with a total value of over £110 million, in Northern Ireland. It is not possible to list all the recipient organisations and projects, but details of each project can be viewed on my Department's website, searchable at www.lottery.culture.gov.uk, which uses information supplied by the lottery distributors.

The following table gives the number and value of NOF awards in each Westminster constituency in Northern Ireland.
