Funding for Disabled Persons Grants

Minister O’Brien approves some €18 million in funding for the Disabled Persons Grant Scheme and the Improvement Works in Lieu of Local Authority Housing Scheme

Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage. Darragh O’Brien TD has today (9 September) approved funding of approximately €2,106,408.00 to Dublin City Council for the Disabled Persons Grant scheme (DPG) and Improvement Works In Lieu of social housing scheme (IWILs).

The DPG scheme provides funding for extensions and adaptations to existing social housing stock for older people and people with a disability such as grab rails, disabled access ramps, wet rooms, downstairs bedrooms etc. The scheme also provides extensions in cases of overcrowding.

The Improvement Works in Lieu of social housing scheme (IWILs) allows local authorities to improve or extend privately owned accommodation, where the applicant has been approved for social housing. It allows those who are otherwise eligible for social housing to remain in private housing and for enhancements to that housing.
