All Local Authorities are required by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage to complete this assessment for households who have been approved for social housing support.

The purpose of the assessment is to identify the level of social housing support need across County Clare and is an important tool for informing national housing policy.

This Council is contacting households who have been approved for social housing support to confirm that they still require social housing support. Each applicant must confirm their requirements to the Council by completing the assessment form which has been issued. 

Households who are approved for a social housing transfer, households who are HAP and RAS tenants are not included in this assessment. Households assessed as part of SSHA 2023 will not be included in this year's review.  

Completed forms are to be returned prior to Friday, 31st May, 2024.

If an applicant no longer requires social housing support or is no longer eligible their file will be closed.

It will be assumed that applicants who do not return their Social Housing Assessment Forms are no longer interested/in need of social housing support, and their file will be closed.

If you have any queries, please contact us on telephone numbers (065) 6846572, (065) 6846558, 065) 6846258 or alternatively email or
