In Fine Gael, we understand that the cost of living is rising.

It’s more expensive to do the weekly shop, to fill your car, or to pay your utility bills. So, Budget 2023 is a Cost of Living Budget, designed to help you and your family, with measures for the most vulnerable and the squeezed middle.

In this Budget Fine Gael is:

  • Putting more money back in your pocket by cutting income tax, increasing pension payments, and increasing welfare payments for families, people with disabilities and carers.
  • Helping you and your family with the cost of living in areas like childcare, public transport, the cost of putting a child through school, or saving up for your first home.
  • Backing business by helping companies to pay their energy bills this winter.
  • Helping with the cost of going to college, by both cutting fees and raising the student grant.
  • Building safer and stronger communities by providing more resources to the Gardaí and the Defence Forces who together protect us.
  • Ensuring the best start for every child with major investment in childcare and early education.
  • Putting €2 billion aside this year and €4 billion next year in a Reserve Fund to protect Ireland from unexpected future shocks.

Whatever happens, you can rely on the Fine Gael team to make sure that our economy stays strong, so that we have the resources to continue helping you with the cost of living, and continue investing in vital public services and public infrastructure like housing.
