Housing Adaption Grant Scheme Re-opens
Meath County Council Housing Department has announced the re-opening of the following Housing Adaptation Grant Schemes from today, the 4th May 2010 said Cllr. Regina Doherty.
• HOUSING ADAPTATION GRANT FOR PEOPLE WITH A DISABILITY
• HOUSING AID FOR OLDER PEOPLE
• MOBILITY AIDS HOUSING GRANT SCHEME
Please note as there is limited availability of funding only applications received during the period 4th May 2010 and the 30th June 2010 will be considered.
The limited funding will be allocated to applicants on the basis of priorities drawn up by the Council in respect of each of the three schemes, with the top priority relating to applicants who are terminally ill or fully/mainly dependant on family or carer; or where alterations/adaptations would facilitate discharge from hospital or alleviate the need for hospitalisation in the future. The Council will be guided by the professional opinion of an Occupational Therapist in affording priority to applications received under the schemes.
A single dedicated phone line is being set up to allow persons to leave their names and addresses to request application forms for any of the three Grant Schemes, which will then be sent out without delay. The dedicated Phone Line Number in respect of applications for the above grants is: (046) 9097295.
Only receipt of a fully completed application form with all required supporting documentation will deem an application valid for assessment to the Housing Department
I would encourage anyone eligible to apply for this funding as soon as possible. If anyone requires assistance with their application please do not hesitate to contact me on 01-8257204 said Cllr. Doherty
