Fine Gael in Government is providing more than €8.5m for Housing Adaptation Grants for Older People and People with a Disability living in private houses within the North Inner City.
The grants will assist with home adaptations for older people, people with a disability and people with mobility issues.
The grant fund will enable older people and people with disabilities to remain living independently in their own homes.
Grants of up to €30,000 are available to assist people with a disability in carrying out necessary works to make a house more suitable for their needs; up to €8,000 to assist older people living in poor housing conditions to have necessary repairs or improvements carried out and up to €6,000 for mobility aids to address mobility problems for a member of the household.
The grants are 80% funded from the exchequer by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, with 20% funding from Dublin City Council.
