The Local Infrastructure Housing Activation Fund is designed to activate housing supply by putting in place the enabling public infrastructure necessary to ensure that large scale development can take place on key sites in urban areas of high housing demand.

Final approval was given for 30 projects under LIHAF in 2017 and early 2018, and these projects will stimulate development of approximately 20,000 housing units across 14 local authorities, at a cost of approximately €195 million, of which approximately 75% will be provided from Exchequer funding. A table with details of these 30 projects, including the infrastructure to be built and the funding amounts, was published in March, 2018 and is available on the Rebuilding Ireland website at http://rebuildingireland.ie/lihaf/.
