Mobility Aids Grant

Local authorities may provide grants to those who own their own home to buy and install grab rails, level access showers, access ramps and stair lifts.

The Mobility Aids Housing Grant is available to cover a basic suite of works to address mobility problems, primarily, but not exclusively, associated with ageing. The works grant aided under the scheme include the following: -

  • Grab-rails
  • Access ramps
  • Level access showers
  • Stair-lifts
  • Other minor works deemed necessary to facilitate the mobility needs of a member of a household.

The effective maximum grant is €6,000 or 100% the cost of the works, whichever is the lesser and the grant is available to households whose gross annual household income does not exceed €30,000.
