This grant of up to £10,000 may be available to owner occupiers in conjunction with a Mandatory Disabled Facilities Grant where the cost of the eligible works exceeds the current mandatory limit of £30,000.

The applicant's ability to afford the excess over the mandatory grant amount will be assessed by carrying out a means test of their resources.  This will include a means test of the resources of parents/guardians of disabled children applying for discretionary DFG top-up funding.

The grant must be repaid in full if the property is sold within 10 years of completion of the works.

Please contact the private sector housing team for further information
