Housing grants available today 01.11.07

OLDER people in Donegal and those with disabilities will be able to apply for housing adaptation grants from today.
The new framework has been introduced following discussions with relevant voluntary organisations.
Three schemes, namely the Housing Adaptation Grant for People with a Disability; Mobility Aids Housing Grant and Housing Aid for Older People, have been revised under the new measures.
The maximum Housing Adaptation Grant for people with a disability will be €30,000 while the ceiling for the Mobility Aids Housing Grant Scheme will be €10,500.
“The Scheme of Housing Aid for Older People will provide targeted support to improve conditions in the existing housing of older people. This revised scheme will amalgamate the provisions of the existing Essential Repairs Grant and the Special Housing Aid for the Elderly schemes," explained Donegal Fianna Fail Senator, Brian O’Domhnaill.
It will include the provision of structural repairs or improvements, re-wiring, repairs to or replacement of water and the provision of water, sanitary services and heating among other modifications.
