Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG)
How much grant can I get?
If the DFG is for a child, a young person, or you are in receipt of one of the benefits listed below, you will not have to be means tested and you could get a full grant to cover the cost of the essential work. The maximum DFG award available is £30,000.
If you receive one or more of the following benefits you will not have to be means tested:
- Income Support
- Housing Benefit
- Guaranteed Pension Credit (Saving Credit does not qualify)
- Working Tax Credit (with a gross annual household income less than £16,040)
- Income-based Employment and Support Allowance
If you do not get one of the above benefits, you and your spouse or partner will be assessed financially to determine if you will have to contribute towards the cost of the works.
