Types of grants available
Updated: 24 May 2013
Due to the reduction in grants funding, we are currently only accepting applications for mandatory Disabled Facilities and Repair grants. Discretionary Renovation, Replacement and Home Repair Assistance grants are only available in exceptional circumstances. Exceptional circumstances are deemed to exist where there is an imminent and significant risk to the occupier. We are not currently accepting new applications for Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO), Living over the Shop (LOTS), or Group Repair Schemes.
For the improvement of homes which have been been inspected and found to be unfit to live in, or a home that is presently fit to live in but which will become unfit if repairs are not carried out. These grants will only be approved in exceptional circumstances.
