Laois County Council will own and manage the scheme with tenants nominated by Laois County Council from its housing waiting list.

Funding for this development was provided from Social Housing Investment Programme(SHIP) monies.

The SHIP funding is capital support provided to Local Authorities under the Housing For All Programme to facilitate the funding of construction, acquisition or refurbishment of new social housing units.
