Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
126. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection if Ireland plans to use InvestEU funds to support investment in social housing; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [53612/21]
My Department provides income support and makes payments to people who require help with their rent via the rent supplement scheme and has no role in relation to investment in social housing.
This is an area which falls under the responsibility of my colleague, the Minister for Housing Local Government and Heritage.
i hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
