The day to day activities of Comhaltas are funded partly by members, partly from the proceeds of events such as Fleadhanna and partly from a grant from the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts Gaeltacht, Sports and Media.

Also Comhaltas is currently in receipt of grant funding from the Government of Ireland – Emigrant Support Programme, coordinated by the Department of Foreign Affairs, to support its activities in Britain, North America, Japan, Melbourne, Sydney, Brazil and Luxembourg.
