Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG)
What is a Disabled Facilities Grant?
If you or someone that you live with are disabled and would benefit from adaptations to your home, then you can apply for a Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) to enable the disabled person to continue living there.
Examples of eligible works can include the following:
- Installation of a stair lift
- Access to a suitable toilet and or washing facility.
- Making it easier to get in and out and around your property.
However, this is not an exhaustive list of potential adaptations a person may be assessed as needing. Please refer to the DFG Policy opposite for more details.
In England the maximum mandatory grant an application can receive is £30,000.
