Policy, including in relation to means testing, for Housing Adaption Grants for People with a Disability is the responsibility of my colleague the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government. Families of children requiring adaptions may also wish to contact their Local Health Office to determine the full range of supports and services available from the HSE.
