11 October, 2021

This document outlines Sinn Féin’s Alternative Budget proposals for 2022, the budget a Sinn Féin government would implement to make a real difference in the lives of ordinary workers and families. Sinn Féin’s priorities include doubling capital investment to deliver 20,000 social and affordable homes a year; tackling waiting lists and reducing the cost of healthcare; reducing the cost of living by cutting rents and reducing the cost of childcare by two thirds over two years; guaranteeing the right to retire on a pension at 65; planning for Irish Unity through the establishment of Citizens Assembly and transitioning to a low carbon society in a way which is affordable and accessible.
