Rent Subsidy

apply for rent subsidy NOW - - fast and professional staff... Let me be clear on this - the maximum threshold for income is €23000 per annum as of Jan 2017 - nb this is single persons allowance OK. Please do not believe previous figures as they were prior to the changes that came into effect on the 1st Jan 2017
Got to be worth a punt and then a pint

Surprisingly good service and confirmation that €23K is the income threshold. It takes 3 months for searches to be done but payments are backdated.
There is a sliding scale - minimum is I think about €80 per month and maximum €160in rent subsidy benefit

One point to note is that the property you rent will need to be inspected by the housing authority in order to check it is to standard. This may not go down well with the landlord and begs the question are any standards enforced in the private rental market as there is NO regulation.

Has anyone actually applied for this recently? - I only know of one person who has and is awaiting the outcome of his application.
