028 9024 5640: Housing & Debt Helpline for Northern Ireland

Findings from the Housing Executive Home Improvement Grant Survey

The Northern Ireland Housing Executive recently published their findings from the 2017 Home Improvement Grants Survey.

The Housing Executive’s Grant Scheme provides grants for disabled facilities and mandatory repairs and, in exceptional circumstances, for discretionary renovation, replacement and home repair assistance.

Overall, the findings from the survey were very positive. The vast majority (92%) of the 712 respondents were satisfied with the scheme.

Almost three quarters (72%) of respondents received help when completing the forms and almost half (46%) these people sought help from an advice organisation. This indicates that completing forms can be a difficult process for applicants.

Read the full report and further information on Home Improvement Grants can be found on the Northern Ireland Housing Executive website.
