The application period for the 2017 Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) Grant Scheme, which opened on Monday 03 April, to continue to encourage wider availability of wheelchair accessible vehicles in Ireland’s SPSV fleet, has now closed. Over 360 grant offers were made and all funding is now exhausted.

If you have already received a Provisional Grant Offer Letter, two things must be accomplished by the date stated in it to receive funding:

1. Ensure that your vehicle successfully passes its suitability inspection test; and
2. Ensure the proposed driver has successfully completed the free Disability Awareness Training course provided by the Authority or an acceptable equivalent.
