Written answers (Question to Housing)

This year, more than €2.4 billion was allocated to the delivery of social homes nationwide, as part of the Rebuilding Ireland Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness.

As part of this programme, targets are set against a range of delivery mechanisms and resources are allocated to local authorities and Approved Housing Bodies, as the key delivery agents for this work.

My Department work closely with both local authorities and Approved Housing Bodies to monitor progress against these targets and progress is published on a quarterly basis on my Department's website.

The most recent report covers the period up to the end of Q2 2019 and includes a breakdown of all homes delivered, on a county by county basis, including information on the funding stream for each scheme. Detailed information can be found here: https://rebuildingireland.ie/news/minister-murphy-publishes-social-housing-construction-status-report-for-q2-2019-2/.

The funding provided by my Department to each local authority in respect of the delivery of housing programmes, in each year from 2016 to 2018, and for the first 9 months of 2019, is set out in the table below.
