HOME LIFT I JANUARY 2019
Improve your home’s accessibility by installing a Premier Ireland home lift, with support available from the Mobility Aids Housing Grant Scheme.
The Mobility Aids Housing Grant Scheme provides grants for works designed to improve the mobility and accessibility of a home. The scheme is primarily for age-related mobility issues. That being said, people with a disability can also apply for the scheme. The grant is administered by the local authorities with a maximum grant available of €6,000.
The Mobility Aids Housing Grant is means tested. The level of grant which a household can attain is determined by the gross income of each household member over 18 years of age (over 23 for full-time students). Gross incomes for household members must not exceed €30,000. In order to apply for the grant, you must have an itemised quotation from a contractor, indicating the cost of the work required.
The grant is available to cover a basic suite of works to address mobility problems. Works aided under the scheme includes:
