ICSH Election Briefing

Availability and access to good quality, secure and affordable housing is a central focus for Election 2016. The true scale of the current housing market is not only reflected in the housing waiting lists and homelessness figures but as a broader issue encompassing households forced out of the rental market e.g. those living in overcrowded accommodation, young people unable to move out of the family home, key workers, older and disabled people in inappropriate accommodation.

Management and Maintenance Allowance

The DECLG has announced that the annual Management and Maintenance allowance paid annually by local authorities to approved housing bodies for CLSS funded properties will remain the same for the year from 1st July 2015 to 30th June 2016 and subsequent years until further notice. These rates are €436 per unit in areas to which the general cost limit applies and €543 per unit in the administrative areas where higher cost limits apply.
