Home Repair Assistance Grants

Help with carrying out essential repairs and adaptations to your home

Home Repair Assistance Grants (HRAs) are available for private tenants or home owners.  They're intended to help eligible people carry out essential repairs to their home.

They are available up to a maximum of £5,000 per application. A maximum of two applications can be made per property in any three year period.

To be eligible, you must be in receipt of one means tested or disability related benefit, and have less than £5,000 in your own savings to pay for adaptations or repairs.

If you need to discuss a HRA application, or would like more information about the scheme, contact the Private Sector Housing Officer.
