The Broadcasting Funding Scheme (Sound & Vision II) was established to provide funding in support of high quality programmes on Irish culture, heritage and experience, and programmes to improve adult literacy.
The Broadcasting Act, 2009 extended the scheme to offer funding towards programmes dealing with the themes of media literacy and global affairs. The Act also increased the percentage level of funding for the Scheme via the television licence fee to 7%. The revised scheme incorporating these amendments is now operational.
