upWARDs Lifts help property owners in Cork and throughout Munster complete housing adaptations by installing stairlifts that have been approved as part of a housing adaptation grant.
The Mobility Aids Grant Scheme provides grants for works designed to address mobility problems in the home, such as the purchase and installation of a stairlift. The scheme is primarily for older people, but people with a disability can also apply.
Where can I find a housing adaptation grant form? I encourage residents in Cork, Tipperary, Kerry and Waterford to get in touch with their local authority by visiting their respective websites and downloading the application form. Find links to your local authority above.
How do I know if I am eligible for a housing adaptation grant? The Mobility Aids Grant scheme is available for people with a household income of less than €30,000 per year. Applicants will also be subject of a means test before receiving an approval for their housing adaptation grant.
How much is the housing adaptation grant? The maximum grant available is €6000. Grant amounts are subject to the funding of each local authority and their decision on whether to pay the full grant amount or a percentage.
