Repair grants are available to landlords, agents and owner occupiers towards the costs of repairing homes. We also assist independent living through financial support for Disabled Facilities Grants, and we will continue to market the grants scheme in 2017/18 to help those with a disability to continue to live in their home.
Funding for discretionary grants, (renovation, replacement and home repair assistance grants) for improvement and repair is limited, and these grants are available only where exceptional circumstances are deemed to exist.
In 2016/17 we spent over £20m on completed adaptations, to help households to live comfortably in their own homes. We approved 1,070 Disabled Facilities Grants to the value of approximately £11.3 million.
During the year , we also approved 668 Repairs Grants and 420 Discretionary Grants, resulting in a total number of approvals of 2,158.
