Brendan Smith welcomes new grant scheme to support home ownership and tackle vacancy in towns and villages across Cavan/Monaghan

Fianna Fáil TD for Cavan and Monaghan, Brendan Smith, has welcomed the recent Croí Cónaithe Towns Scheme which offers grants of €30,000 to €50,000 for first time buyers in order to support the refurbishment of empty homes while breathing new life into our towns and villages. 

Deputy Smith said, “I’m delighted to see this new €50m fund under Housing For All which will support more people to live in our towns and villages by refurbishing currently vacant properties.

“A priority of the Government’s Housing For All plan is to encourage refurbishment of vacant properties to boost housing supply.

“This new scheme offers grants of €30,000 to €50,000 for first time buyers who wish to refurbish a vacant property in a town or village across the country.

“This scheme will support people’s access to home ownership while also breathing life in towns and villages across Cavan and Monaghan.”
