100 vacant social housing units in Kildare have been returned to use since 2014.
The Dept. of Housing has allocated, in that period, €1.5 million to Kildare County Council to carry out works necessary to make the homes habitable.
Local authorities submit claims for funding to the Dept., on an on-going basis, as works are completed
Nationally, around 8,300 homes have been returned to use.
