Over Half A Million Euro Going Towards Improving Midlands' Disability Housing

The scheme also provides extensions in cases of overcrowding.

The midlands is receiving over half a million euro in funding to improve housing for people with disabilities.

The government's Disabled Persons Grant scheme provides for extensions and adaptations to existing social housing stock for older people and people with a disability, such as grab rails, access ramps, wet rooms, and downstairs bedrooms.

The scheme also provides extensions in cases of overcrowding.

Roughly €20,000 is allocated by each local authority with the remainder provided by the exchequer.

In total, Laois will receive €230,000, Westmeath €204,000, and €194,000 in Offaly.
