Homelessness Action Plan
The North East Region comprises the local authority areas of Counties Cavan, Monaghan and Louth.
Homelessness services are managed operationally at local level while the strategic and administrative obligations are the responsibility of the Regional Homelessness Strategic Management Group with Louth County Council as the lead, responsible agency by statute. The North East Regional Consultative Homelessness Forum is a parallel group comprising statutory, voluntary and community representatives providing direction and advice across all sectors of the Region.
Section 37 of the Housing (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act, 2009 requires housing authorities to adopt action plans to address homelessness. Normally these plans are prepared by the regional homelessness strategic management group and for the North East Region, the 2018-20 plan is its third 3-year plan since 2010.
The plan specifies the measures proposed to be undertaken to address homelessness in the administrative area or administrative areas concerned.
