Section 6: What is the difference between the RISF and the Education Finance Board? First Update From the Residential Institutions Statutory Fund(RISF) September 2013

What is the difference between the RISF and the Education 

Finance Board?  

There are two differences between RISF and the Education Finance 

Board:  

 

          The Education Finance Board provided assistance towards the cost 

       of education only, RISF has a wider brief 

           Former residents and their relatives were eligible to apply to the 

        Education Finance Board.  Only former residents who have received 

       awards through the Redress Board (or equivalent court awards) are 

       eligible to apply to RISF. 

 

 

 

Why is the Education Finance Board gone?  

The Education Finance Board was established in 2006 with a fund of 

€12.7 million.  This fund was fully allocated in November 2011 and no 

applications were processed after this.  The Residential Institutions 

Statutory Fund Act, 2012 provides for the Finance Board to be dissolved 

and all its assets and liabilities to be transferred to the RISF.
