I welcome the second round of funding to support the vacant unit programme. I am delighted that this week my colleague Minister Jan O’Sullivan has allocated €15m in funding to bring back into use 1008 vacant local authority units. Tipperary will receive€489,000 which will allow 37 units around the county return to beneficial use. This funding brings total investment to €30m already this year in relation to this important programme. This is a positive programme that increases social housing supply quickly. This investment will also create and sustain hundreds of jobs in the construction area.
