Exchequer funding of some €128 million has been provided to local authorities from 2013 to end-2018, to improve energy efficiency and comfort levels in over 68,000 local authority homes.

For 2019, the energy retrofitting programme has an allocated exchequer budget of €25 million. My Department will shortly be asking local authorities to submit details of their 2019 work proposals and related funding requirements for this programme, following which funding allocations will issue to all authorities, including Dublin City Council.
