According to a finance report this week, the councils revenue expenditure exceeded its budgeted expenditure by €91.7m, of which €59.2m was spent on the covid rates waiver and €31.4m spent on the Restart Grant.

Meanwhile, the council has received a 2021 allocation of €2,925,000 from the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage for Housing Adaptation Grants for older people and people with a disability in the county.

This allocation includes a contribution of €585,106 from council resources.

The means-tested grants can be applied for by homeowners requiring adaptation of their home. The council continues to process grant applications during Covid-19 restrictions, and prioritise applications for those currently in hospital/care facilities to allow them to return to their home as swiftly as possible.
