Posted by


FUNDING of over €283,666 has been allocated for the Disabled Persons Grant Scheme in Kerry.

Kerry Fine Gael TD and Minister of State at the Department of Tourism and Sport, Brendan Griffin welcomed announcement, saying it’ll greatly improve the housing conditions for those living with disabilities.

The Disabled Persons Grant Scheme provides funding for extensions and adaptations to existing social housing stock such as grab rails, disabled access ramps, wet rooms, etc.  The scheme also provides extensions in cases of overcrowding.

In addition, the scheme provides funding for Improvement Works in Lieu in order to improve or extend privately owned accommodation where the occupant is already approved for social housing, reducing the strain on current social housing stock.
