HFA awards €250,000 in funding to projects around the country

The Housing Finance Agency (HFA) has announced funding of €250,000 to support Approved Housing Bodies and Local Authorities in the delivery of community-enhancing initiatives and facilities. Thirteen initiatives across 11 different counties were chosen.

Waterford City and County Council has been awarded €30,000 to fit out a community centre, which will be used as a horticultural educational training hub.

The HFA, which provides financing to support the delivery of social and affordable housing, awards community project funding to customers each year through its Social Investment Fund. The aim of the fund is to support initiatives that will complement the communities in which HFA-financed homes are built.

Commenting on the funding Ivan Grimes, Director of Services, Waterford City and County Council said, “The funding is a welcome boost as Waterford City and County Council is committed to the development and roll-out of programmes throughout the county that deliver tangible benefits to well-being, diversity, social inclusion, and enhance our communities.”
