Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government
121. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government his plans to change the maximum grant limits of the housing adaptation grant; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [26824/21]
Funding of €75 million is available nationally in 2021 for the Housing Adaptation Grants for Older People and People with a Disability Scheme. This funding has increased year on year since 2014. As part of the annual budgetary process, consideration will be given to this funding in future years in line with the Programme for Government commitments and the Policy Statement on Housing Options for Our Ageing Population, which is available on my Department's website at the following link:
This year, my Department will begin a review of the existing grant limits and income thresholds applicable to the grants.
