Local Infrastructure Housing Activation Fund
(LIHAF)

The Local Infrastructure Housing Activation Fund (LIHAF) is a key element of Pillar 3 of Rebuilding Ireland: An Action Plan for Housing & Homelessness. The objective of the fund is to provide public off-site infrastructure to relieve critical infrastructure blockages. This will enable the accelerated delivery of housing on key development sites in Dublin and in urban areas of high demand for housing. The call for proposals for the €200 million fund was announced on 26 August 2016, with a closing date of 14 October 2016.

Approved LIHAF Projects – Updated March 2018

30 major public infrastructure projects have now received final approval and have been signed off under the LIHAF Fund.

These projects will enable and activate the delivery of almost 20,000 new homes across public and private sites by 2021. It is expected that over a quarter of these homes will be social or affordable homes, with another 28% of the homes having a LIHAF-related cost reduction.

The document below provides more detail on each of the 30 approved projects.
