Housing for All


‘Housing for All - a New Housing Plan for Ireland’ is the government’s housing plan to 2030.


It is a multi-annual, multi-billion euro plan to improve Ireland’s housing system and deliver more homes of all types for people with different housing needs.


The government’s overall objective is that every citizen in the State should have access to good quality homes:


  • to purchase or rent at an affordable price,
  • built to a high standard and in the right place,
  • offering a high quality of life.


 Housing for All provides four pathways to achieving four overarching objectives:


  • Supporting Home ownership and Increasing Affordability
  • Eradicating Homelessness, Increasing Social Housing Delivery and Supporting Social Inclusion;
  • Increasing New Housing Supply; and
  • Addressing Vacancy and Efficient Use of Existing Stock.
