For the Attention of Approved Housing Bodies (AHBs) Operating in County Leitrim
Capital Assistance Scheme (CAS) Programme 2015-2017
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
This ‘Call for Proposals’ requests Approved Housing Bodies (AHBs) operating within County Leitrim to put forward cost effective and sustainable proposals for new Capital Assistance Scheme (CAS) construction and/or acquisition projects to meet identified Housing Needs within County Leitrim. Priority consideration will be given to modest developments of up to 10-16 units and to projects targeting accommodation for homeless persons, older people and people with a disability. The locations of highest demand have been identified as Carrick on Shannon, Manorhamilton, Drumshanbo, Kinlough/Tullaghan and Ballinamore/Carrigallen, with a specific requirement for ground floor/bungalow type accommodation.
AHBs are now invited to identify suitable properties/sites and complete a preliminary appraisal with sufficient information to enable Leitrim County Council to assess the project. Any proposal must be submitted on a Form CAS1 and must be accompanied by a Project Appraisal as required under Circular VCH 2/2008. Both of these documents are available on request and can be accessed on the Irish Council for Social Housing website www.icsh.ie. It should be noted that only those AHB’s who have signed up to the Voluntary Regulation Code will be eligible for funding under this CAS Call for Proposals.
For further details, including Forms, Guidance and Assessment Criteria please contact the Housing Office at 071 9650405 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
