As reflected in the National Development Plan 2018 - 2017, a total of 112,000 social housing homes will be delivered over the next decade, through a range of mechanisms including build, long term leasing and acquisitions.

In addition to the social housing homes already delivered under Rebuilding Ireland, 40,000 further social housing homes will be delivered between 2018 and 2021, with the remaining 72,000 social housing homes being delivered between 2022 and 2027, at a rate of 12,000 homes per annum. In relation to the blend of social housing delivery between 2018 and 2021, details of this blend can be accessed on my Department's website at the following link:

In relation to the 72,000 social housing homes that will be delivered between 2022 and 2027, the precise delivery blend for each year will be finalised at a later stage.

It should be noted that the delivery of the 112,000 social housing homes over the next decade does not include housing supports that will be provided to households under the Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) Scheme or the Rental Accommodation Scheme (RAS).
