Wicklow County Council is inviting applications for funding under the terms of the Housing Adaption Grants, Housing Aid for Older People Grants and Mobility Aid Grants.
Funding will be allocated to applicants on the basis of the following priorities:
- Priority One: Applicants who are terminally ill or mainly dependent on family or a carer, or where alterations/adaptations would facilitate the discharge from hospital or alleviate hospitalisation in the future
- Priority Two: Mobile but needs assistance in accessing facilities, or where, without the adaptation the disabled persons’ ability to function independently would be hindered
- Priority Three: The applicant is independent, but requires special facilities to improve their quality of life, eg separate bedroom or living space
