The Housing Agency provides a central support service which assesses applications for the Rebuilding Ireland Home Loan on behalf of local authorities and makes recommendations to the authorities to approve or refuse applications. Each local authority must have in place a credit committee and it is a matter for the committee to make the decision on applications for loans, in accordance with the regulations, having regard to the recommendations made by the Housing Agency.

The most recent data, to the end of May 2021, provided by the Housing Agency regarding the number of applications submitted and recommended for approval for Wexford County Council in 2020 and to date in 2021 by quarter, are set out in the attached spreadsheet.

It is a matter for Wexford County Council to progress the next stages in the process in respect of approval and drawdown of these Rebuilding Ireland Home Loans.

My Department regularly publishes information on the number and value of (i) local authority loan approvals and (ii) local authority loan drawdowns. Figures for 2020 are available at the following link which updates as the most recent figures as they are published:
