1.3 million euro in funding has been announced for Clare, to bring vacant social housing units up to standard.
The Department of Housing has earmarked the funding for 60 social housing units in the county, which have been lying idle, awaiting various works.
These units will be refurbished and re-let to individuals and families struggling with homelessness or on the social housing list.
36 standard units have been granted more than 434,00 euro, while 24 long-term voids will benefit from just over 880,700 euro.
It’s hoped the work will be carried out by the end of this year.
