The Housing Adaptation Grant for People with a Disability is available to assist in the carrying out of works which are reasonably necessary for the purposes of rendering a house more suitable for the accommodation of a person with a disability who has an enduring physical, sensory, mental health or intellectual impairment. The types of works allowable under the scheme include the provision of access ramps, downstairs toilet facilities, stair lifts, accessible showers, adaptations to facilitate wheelchair access, and any other works which are reasonably necessary for the purposes of rendering a house more suitable for the accommodation of the person with a disability.
The maximum grant available is €30,000 which may cover up to 95% of the approved cost of works. Prioritisation of eligibility will be on the basis of medical and financial need with 95% of the approved cost of work available to those with annual household incomes of less than €30,000 tapering to 30% for those with annual household incomes of €60,000.
The maximum Housing Adaptation Grant available for new houses for people with a disability is €14,500.
