Following completion of a recent review of rent supplement for the person concerned, the monthly rent supplement rate has been increased to €370 per month.

A letter advising the person concerned of the outcome of his rent supplement review and of the requirement to provide evidence that he is on the housing list with Kildare County Council issued in the post on 3/12/19.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
