Note for Editors.

Under the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government Voluntary Housing Capital Funding Schemes, approved voluntary housing organisations provide accommodation for renting to certain categories of tenants such as homeless persons, elderly persons, persons with disabilities and families on the housing authority waiting list.

Voluntary and co-operative housing bodies play an increasingly important role in the provision of rental accommodation and the overall response to national housing needs. The allocations announced today will greatly assist the voluntary and co-operative bodies in putting in place the necessary resources and structures to plan and implement a robust programme to deliver on needs.
