Galway City and County are set to receive a combined total of just over €4.5 million under the Housing Adaption Grant funding.

The funding will help to facilitate independent living for older and disabled people in Galway and across the country.

Grants of up to €30,000 are available to assist disabled people in carrying out work to make a house more suitable for their needs.

Nationwide €83 million has been promised which is a 2.3% increase on the initial 2022 funding allocation.
