Written answers (Question to Housing)

Payment and Availability Agreements (P&As) are funded under the Social Housing Current Expenditure Programme (SHCEP), which funds the ongoing current costs of homes delivered by Approved Housing Bodies through build and acquisition, in addition to homes delivered through the various leasing programmes.

The total SHCEP spend in 2020 was €197m, of which €142m related to expenditure on P&A agreements. At the end of 2020, 11,277 of the 17,680 dwellings funded through SHCEP, were funded through a P&A agreement.

Details of the 2021 funding provision for SHCEP and related output target are set out in the 2021 Revised Estimates (REV) which is available at the following link:
