Grants for home adaptations are financial support that is provided to help you improve the accessibility of your home if you have a disability. The grant aims to give people with a disability the opportunity to live as independently as possible in their own home.
Grants are paid to individuals, whether you own your own home or live in rented or tenant-owned accommodation. The property owner’s consent is required for adaptations to rented or tenant-owned accommodation. A grant can only be approved if there is a long-term or lasting need for the adaptation measures.
• Entering and leaving your home
• Moving around within your home
• Preparing and eating food
• Maintaining personal hygiene
• Sleeping and resting
• Removing doorsteps
• Making a shower accessible
• Installing an entrance ramp
• Widening doorways
If you move home, grants can only be awarded in special circumstances. Under the Swedish Home Adaptation Act, you are expected to choose a home that does not require extensive and expensive measures.
You can apply using our e-service or by filling in a form. You must enclose a certificate with your application confirming that the measures are necessary based on your disability. An occupational therapist or other specialist will be able to help you with this certificate.
The municipal authority investigates, examines and decides whether or not the measures are eligible for a grant, based on the applicable rules and practice. If you are unhappy with the decision, you can appeal. Information about how to do this is provided with the decision.
Good to know!
Grants are not provided for measures in holiday homes, for ordinary property maintenance or for technical deficiencies.
