Over €3 million is being made available in Co Mayo to support home adaptations for older people and those with disabilities or mobility issues.

The funding, which has been increased this year, provides grants of up to €30,000 to assist people with a disability to carry out the necessary works to make a house more suitable for their needs, while smaller grants are available to assist older people and those with mobility problems to carry out necessary improvements.

Funding of over €2.5 million is being provided by Government with a further €637,000 from Mayo County Council.

The Minister for Rural & Community Development Michael Ring says these grants enable people to remain living independently in their homes for longer, and will also facilitate early return home from hospital.
