Grants for Homeowners

Dublin City Council provide grants to assist with adaptation works which are necessary to allow you to remain living in your home. The grants available are :

  • Housing Adaptation Grant for people with a disability
  • Housing Aid for Older People Grant
  • Mobility Aid Housing Grant

The Housing Adaptation Grant Scheme

Your disability must be lasting and involve physical, sensory, mental health or intellectual impairment. The types of works covered include the fitting of access ramps, downstairs toilet, stair-lifts, level access showers, changes to allow wheelchair access, extensions, and any other works which are reasonably necessary to make a house more suitable for a person with a disability to live in.

The Mobility Aids Housing Grant Scheme

The Mobility Aids Housing Grant Scheme covers a basic range of works and is designed to assist people with mobility issues. The works covered include grab rails, access ramps, level access showers, stair-lifts, and other small works reasonably necessary to make a house more suitable for a person with mobility problems to live in.

The Housing Aid for Older People Grant Scheme

The Housing Aid for Older People Grant Scheme is designed to help older people living in poor housing conditions to make necessary repairs or improvements to their houses. The types of works covered by the scheme include re-wiring, installing central heating (where none exists) and the replacement of a boiler that is broken beyond repair.

The Housing Adaptation Grant and the Housing Aid for Older People Grant applies to you if:

  • You live in your own home
  • Purchased your home from a local authority under the tenant purchase scheme
  • You live in private rented accommodation
  • Your accommodation is provided under the Voluntary Housing Capital Assistance and Rental Subsidy Scheme
  • You are living in communal residence, e.g. senior citizens complexes
