The Housing Adaptation Grants Scheme for disabled people is available to assist in the carrying out of works that are necessary for the purposes of rendering a house more suitable for the accommodation of a disabled person who is a member of the household. An Occupational Therapist’s report is required outlining recommendation of proposed works. The availability of the grant is means tested and the level of grant is determined on the basis of gross income of each member of the household over 18 years of age (over 23 if a full time student) for the previous tax year. Grant allocation is calculated on approved net cost of proposed works. The maximum grant available is €30,000. Refund on the VAT amount can be recouped from the Revenue Commissioners when payment has been issued by the Council.
