Housing Assistance Payment

Housing Assistance Payment

Since 2nd November this year, Meath County Council can now offer as an additional social housing support, the Housing Assistance Payment (HAP). Initially all newly qualified Housing Applicants will be supplied with a pack, illustrating the scheme. In effect the following will happen.

  • Approved Housing Applicant will source their own unit of accommodation subject to available rent limits.
  • The Housing Authority will satisfy itself on the standard of the unit within a timeframe.
  • The Housing Authority will arrange for the Landlord to be paid a monthly rent for the unit.
  • The Tenant will pay a differential rent which is calculated and paid to the Housing Authority.
  • The Housing Applicant will be deemed to have their need satisfied.
