I propose to take Questions Nos. 527, 528 and 540 together.

The Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) scheme is a flexible and immediate housing support that is available to all eligible households throughout the State. At the end of Q3 2021 there were more than 62,000 households in receipt of HAP and over 33,600 separate landlords and agents providing accommodation to households supported by the scheme.  

The table below shows the number of active HAP tenancies in Co. Clare from 2016 to 2021
