Getting help with home improvement costs

Homeowners can get repair and improvement grants from the Housing Executive in certain circumstances. Applications are open to the Disabled Facilities Grant scheme and Mandatory Repair Grants scheme. Renovation, replacement and repair grants are only available in exceptional circumstances to homeowners.

Mandatory Disabled Facilities Grants scheme

This scheme is only open to a homeowner who wants to adapt a house and make it easier for a disabled person to continue living in their home.

Mandatory Repair Grants scheme

This scheme is only open to landlords, agents and tenants. They can apply for a grant to repair a house if they’ve received a statutory repair notice from the council.
