Carbery Housing Association is a community based social housing developer and provider, approved by the Department of Housing. CHA purchases and leases properties to provide long term housing for rent for families who cannot afford to rent of buy on the open market. We secure local authority support and loan funding to develop these initiatives. We at present have 20 properties which are being rented to families nominated by the local Councils. We also conduct repairs and have a retrofitting progress for these homes.  We have secured funding from the Irish Government Sustainable Energy Authority to conduct retrofit wires on 2 isomers to being them to B2 standard.  We have also secured part-funding from the Interreg NWE programme to install PV panes, battery storage, smart meters, and storage heaters in 6 CHA homes. This aims at making this e properties fossil fuel free, We have also discussed with the West Cork Islands organisations how we can promote housing for incoming residents.
