From Jan 1st 2023, social housing income eligibility thresholds in Local Authorities across the country have been increased by €5,000.


Commenting Minister O’Brien said, “It’s been over a decade since any changes have been made to the income eligibility thresholds and under Housing for All a commitment was made to review the eligibility limits.

“Work is ongoing in developing a revised income eligibility model and this will be completed in 2023,” he concluded.
