Capital Assistance Scheme (CAS)
This Scheme is designed for the provision of rented accommodation for those with special needs i.e. elderly, disabled, homeless etc. The council may advance non-repayable loans to approved bodies to cover the cost of provision of these units subject to a maximum of €110,000 per unit for one and two person units and €135,000 per unit for larger family type units. Additional funding of €40,000 per unit is also available towards site purchase and development.
These loans are not repayable provided that the accommodation continues to be let to eligible categories of persons and is properly maintained. A 100% funding is available subject to the above limits. In this case all lettings must be made to persons who are on the council's housing waiting list.
