This policy will assist disabled facility grant applicants who require adaptations that will be above the mandatory grant limit of £30,000 to a maximum discretionary grant of £20,000 and/ or applicants who are unable to meet the assessed contribution following a means test, where there assessed contribution is £10,000 or below.

 

The Council’s existing Disabled Facilities Grant policy remains unchanged and in conjunction with the other Gloucestershire district authorities, this newly introduced discretionary grant policy is to be reviewed on a quarterly basis and fully reviewed in March 2023.
