WICKLOW County Coun­cil is invit­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for fund­ing un­der the terms of the Hous­ing Adap­ta­tion Grants, Hous­ing Aid for Older Peo­ple Grants and Mo­bil­ity Aid Grants. The clos­ing date for ap­pli­ca­tions is Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 22.

Fund­ing will be al­lo­cated to ap­pli­cants on the ba­sis of three pri­or­i­ties.

Pri­or­ity one will be given to ap­pli­cants who are terminally ill or mainly de­pen­dent on fam­ily or a carer, or where al­ter­ations/adap­ta­tions would fa­cil­i­tate the dis­charge from hos­pi­tal or al­le­vi­ate hos­pi­tal­i­sa­tion in the fu­ture

Pri­or­ity two will be for some­one who is mo­bile but needs as­sis­tance in ac­cess­ing fa­cil­i­ties, or where, with­out the adap­ta­tion the dis­abled per­sons’ abil­ity to func­tion in­de­pen­dently would be hin­dered

Pri­or­ity three will be for a sit­u­a­tion where the ap­pli­cant is in­de­pen­dent, but re­quires spe­cial fa­cil­i­ties to im­prove their qual­ity of life e.g. sep­a­rate bed­room or liv­ing space

The Hous­ing Adap­ta­tion Grant will only be a con­tri­bu­tion to­ward the to­tal cost of the works. Any short­fall be­tween the amount of grant of­fered, and the works in­voiced is to be met by the ap­pli­cant. Works must not com­mence prior to re­ceipt by the Lo­cal Author­ity of the grant ap­pli­ca­tion and writ­ten ap­proval from the Lo­cal Author­ity
