Decision Proposed
Staying Independent at Home Policy – Widening the Use of the Disabled Facilities Grant
Report of Director for Adult Social Care
Cabinet : 22/03/22

The Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 (HGCRA 1996) places a mandatory duty on the Local Authority to provide grants towards the costs of works required for the provision of facilities for people living with disabilities as defined in the Equality Act 2010.  These are known as Disabled Facilities Grants (DFG). Funding is allocated annually from central government via the Better Care Fund to support local authorities to discharge this duty.


Cabinet approval is sought to adopt a new policy to this effect to provide support to citizens to remain living independently in their homes.

Key Decisions
