Kerry County Council are part of the Regional Homeless Action Plan, which is part of a national policy.
This plan aims to prevent homelessness, eliminate the need to sleep rough and provide long term housing solutions.
Almost €700,000 will go towards Arlington Lodge and four other reduced support facilities also in Tralee and this money will cover the cost of emergency B&B accommodation.
Over €172,000 will be used to operate the Homeless Information Centre in Denny Street, Tralee.
That centre has seen a marked increase in the number of families seeking help up from 14 in 2015 to 25 in the following 12 months.
This has placed a strain on resources and finances to find suitable accommodation.
