The Housing Adaptation Grant Schemes are funded by 80% recoupment available from my Department together with a 20% contribution from the resources of the local authority. It is a matter for each local authority to decide on the specific level of funding to be directed to each of the various grant measures, and to manage the operation of the schemes in their areas from within their allocation.

Details of the combined Exchequer and local authority allocations in respect of Cavan and Monaghan County Councils for the years 2007 to 2012 and the amount recouped to each authority are set out in the following table:
