Written answers (Question to Social)

No application for rent supplement has been received by my Department from the person concerned at her present address. She would need to provide details of her current circumstances to the local Rents Unit at Damastown before it can be ascertained what the maximum rent supplement payable would be in her case. Generally speaking however, the maximum rent level for rent supplement in the Dublin 15 area for a family of three dependent children is €900 per month.
