Kerry County Council has paid out a quarter of a million euro in Housing Adaptation Grants so far this year.

Over €96,000 in Mobility Aid grants, almost €81,000 in Housing Aid for Older People, and €67,500 in Housing Adaptation Grants for Older People with a Disability have been allocated between January and April.

Another €830,000 in grants were allocated during that same period, but have yet to be paid as the works aren’t completed.

A further 150 new applications have been made since the start of the year.

The council revealed the details in response to a question from Fine Gael Cllr Aoife Thorton.
