Majority Of Maynooth MD HAP Households Have Signed Up This Year.

: 09/13/2017 - 17:22

The vast majority of households signed up to the Housing Assistance Payment in the Maynooth MD have done so this year.

Kildare County Council says 248 applications to the programme have been approved since November, 2015.

Of those, 135 were approved this year.

Under HAP, local authorities will make a monthly payment to a landlord, subject to terms and conditions including rent limits, on a HAP tenant’s behalf.

In return, the HAP tenant pays a weekly contribution towards the rent to the local authority.

This ‘rent contribution’ is based on the household income.
