Your local County Council operate a “Housing Adaptation Grant” which entitles you to a grant for converting or adapting your home to suit your independence and mobility needs.
The Housing Adaptation Grant for Individuals with Disabilities is designed to assist individuals with physical, sensory, mental health, or intellectual disabilities. This grant offers financial support to enhance accessibility and mobility within their homes, enabling them to improve their entry and movement throughout the living space.
The types of works allowable under the scheme include the provision of access ramps, downstairs toilet facilities, stair lifts, accessible showers, wheelchair access, and other works considered necessary.
To initiate the application process for the Housing Adaptation Grant, please refer to the contact details, listed below, of the respective County Councils in Limerick, Clare, and Tipperary.
