Capital Assistance Scheme

The Department is now accepting applications for capital funding for the delivery through either the construction or acquisition of housing accommodation to cater for the priority groups under the Capital Assistance Scheme (CAS) such as homeless persons (including “care leavers” exiting State care on reaching the age of 18), elderly and people with a disability with a particular emphasis, but not exclusively, on moving people with a disability from a congregated setting into community based living.

Cork County Council requests submissions as follows:

New CAS construction and acquisitions proposals specifically for the provision of accommodation to meet the needs of all the target groups under CAS.  All AHBs will need to adhere to circular Capital Assistance Scheme – Call for Proposal (pdf) which outlines details of the scheme (and relevant circulars) including:

  • Acquisition of units
  • Construction of new units
  • Criteria to be used by LAs in assessing proposals
  • Rents
  • Compliance with Voluntary Regulatory Code
  • Ethical Framework and Disclosure of Interest

Proposals will be accepted on a “rolling basis”.
