Mobility Aids Housing Grant
The grant is means tested and is available to applicants where their income does not exceed €30,000.00 per annum to cover a basic suite of works to address mobility problems primarily, but not exclusively, associated with ageing. Any works applied for will be necessary to facilitate the mobility needs of a member of the household. The maximum grant available is €6,000 (ex. V.A.T.). The VAT is fully reclaimable on all mobility products.
An Occupational Therapist Report must accompany any applications made under the Housing Adaptation Grant for People with a Disability and the Mobility Aids Housing Grant.
Please ensure that you discuss waiting times in terms of grant application processing.
