More than €1.6m for housing in Donegal

More than €1.6 million has been allocated for housing in County Donegal.

The money will help refurbish social housing units in the county and re-let to individuals and families struggling with homelessness or who are on the social housing list.

Agriculture Minister and Donegal TD Charlie McConalogue says it will help bring 107 housing units back into use.

The allocation to Donegal has been made under the 2020 Voids Stimulus Programme announced by Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Darragh O’Brien TD.

It is part of a nationwide stimulus programme of €39.8 million for 2,398 applications approved across 35 local authorities.
