The table below provides details of ongoing and completed projects funded under the Capital Assistance Scheme (CAS) for victims of domestic violence.  As well as CAS-funded schemes, the housing needs of victims of domestic violence can also be addressed by the provision of accommodation by local authorities from their own stock of housing. 

CAS funding remains available to support Approved Housing Bodies (AHBs) providing accommodation for victims of domestic violence. CAS is permanently open for new proposals to be submitted to local authorities by AHBs in respect of any of the eligible categories of housing need, including victims of domestic violence and proposals for the latter are progressed in agreement with Tusla as regards prioritisation and operational arrangements.
