Udaras na Gaeltachta There were 90 people employed in social employment schemes in the Kerry Gaeltacht at the end of 2015. The schemes are managed and administered by Údarás na Gaeltachta and funded by the Department of Social Protection in West and South Kerry. Language plans are also being prepared by lead organisations Comharchumann Forbartha Chorca Dhuibhne Teo and Comhchoiste Ghaeltachta Ciarraí Theas Teo for these areas. It is expected that the language plans will be submitted to the Minister of Arts, Heritage and Gaeltacht for approval mid-2016.
