I welcome the funding of €960,000 to Galway County Council towards Disabled Person Grants Scheme for existing social housing stock.
“This grant provides valuable assistance to the Local Authorities in carrying out adaptations to its social housing stock”.
“As a member of the Oireachtas Committee on Disabilities Matters, I continue to advocate for people with disabilities and this grant will be of assistance”.
“I want to commend Galway County Council staff in their efforts in administering these grants for this very important scheme”.
“The scheme provides funding for extensions and adaptations to existing social housing stock for older people and people with a disability such as grab rails, disabled access ramps, wet rooms, downstairs bedrooms etc. The scheme also provides extensions in cases of overcrowding”.
