Louth County Council is appealing to owners of unoccupied properties to offer them as temporary homes for people fleeing the devastating war in Ukraine.
The call is part of a new government initiative, led by local authorities, to make use of unoccupied houses, apartments or holiday homes to house Ukrainian people and families.
A tax-free recognition payment of €800 per month is available for properties used to house those arriving from Ukraine. This payment rate applies from December 1st 2022.
More than 60,000 people have arrived to Ireland from Ukraine seeking safety and the vast majority need accommodation.
