Written answers (Question to Housing)

A budget of €20million has been allocated for 2020 to provide for energy efficiency renovations for social housing homes in the midlands.

My Department is currently exploring and considering arrangements for the scheme in question and once that work is completed, details of the scheme and its impact, if any, on local authority budgets will be notified to those local authorities, as soon as possible.
