Mobility Aids Housing Grants
The Mobility Aids Housing Grant covers a basic suite of works to address mobility problems, primarily, but not exclusively, associated with ageing.
The works grant aided under the scheme include: grab rails, access ramps, level access showers, stair lifts and other minor works deemed necessary to facilitate the mobility needs of a member of the household.
The effective maximum grant is €6,000 or 100% of the cost of the works, whichever is the lesser. The grant is available to households whose gross annual household income does not exceed €30,000.
Where Meath County Council refers a Housing Grant application to a Consultant Occupational Therapist for assessment and prioritisation on the basis of medical need (as per Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government Guidlines), approved grant amounts will be subject to a deduction up to the value of €200.00 in respect of such Occupational Therapist Fees.
If the applicant is a child who is aged under 5 years, and has been assessed under Part 2 of the Disability Act 2005 by the HSE as requiring specific housing support, a copy of the Report from the Occupational Therapist who carried out the assessment should be submitted with the application.
NO GRANT WILL BE AWARDED IF WORKS HAVE COMMENCED PRIOR TO AN APPLICATION BEING LODGED AND APPROVED BY MEATH COUNTY COUNCIL.
