Housing adaptation grant will help older people stay at home longer, says Limerick TD

Minister Collins said the grants would allow older people to stay in their homes longer.

FUNDING for an older person’s grant will help Limerick people stay in their homes longer, Fianna Fáil Minister of State Niall Collins has said.

The government announced that €3.9million was allocated to the Housing Adaptation Grant for Older People and Disabled People in Limerick to ensure residents can stay in their homes.

Under the schemes, grants of up to €30,000 are available to eligible people to undertake works in their home to ensure they can remain living there.

Minister Collins said that the grants “will allow Limerick City and County Council to continue to support older and disabled people to live independently and in their own homes”, and that the grants “also provide a boost to our local economy, creating employment opportunities”.
