Anyone with a vacant home in Kildare is being invited to apply to a scheme which may make up to €40,000 available to fund repairs.
The "Repair and Leasing Scheme for Vacant Houses" is being operated by Kildare County Council under the Rebuilding Ireland programme.
It aims to enable the use of currently vacant privately owned homes as social housing.
Qualifying homes will, following repairs, be rented to KCC tenants on long-term leases.
The cost of the repair works will be deducted incrementally from the lease payments over an agreed lease term.
Today is the final day on which applications can be accepted by KCC.
