Eligibility

To be eligible, you or someone living in your property must be disabled. Either you or the person you’re applying for must:

  • own the property or be a tenant
  • intend to live in the property during the grant period (which is currently 5 years)

We need to be happy that the work is:

  • necessary and appropriate to meet the disabled person’s needs
  • reasonable and can be done - depending on the age and condition of the property

Demand for the grant is high, so we can only provide it to people who are eligible and in the most need.
