Mobility Aids Housing Grant Scheme
The Mobility Aids Housing Grant Scheme is available to fast track grant aid to cover basic suite of works to address mobility problems, primarily, but not exclusively, associated with ageing. This Scheme is also for the disabled person who is a member of the household. An Occupation 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 household member over 18 years of age (over 23 if a full time student) for the previous tax year. The maximum grant available is €6,000 or 100% of the approved net cost of proposed works. Gross income of household members must not exceed €30,000. Refund on the VAT amount can be recouped from the Revenue Commissioners when payment has been issued by the Council.
