Written answers (Question to Housing)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 1190, 1197 and 1198 together.

The implementation of Rebuilding Ireland is a key Government priority supported by significant annual investment. For 2019 alone, funding of €2.4 billion is being provided for all housing programmes with a further €2.63 billion available in 2020.

This investment will see the housing needs of almost 27,400 households being met in 2019, of which 10,000 will be new social housing homes delivered through build, acquisition and long term leasing programmes. In 2020, we are targeting delivery of over 11,000 homes though build, acquisition and leasing.

Below are details of both the capital and current funding my Department has provided to each local authority, including Kildare County Council, for the delivery of housing services under Rebuilding Ireland.

The scale of the funding available has allowed us to approved a significant social housing build programme nationally, a detailed breakdown of which is contained in the Social Housing Construction Status Report which is updated and published on a quarterly basis. The report covering the period up to end Quarter 2 of 2019 is available on the Rebuilding Ireland website at https://rebuildingireland.ie/news/minister-murphy-publishes-social-housing-construction-status-report-for-q2-2019-2/.
