WAV Grant Scheme 2023

To support the wider availability of wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs) in Ireland’s small public service vehicle fleet, NTA is pleased to announce that the WAV Grant Scheme will run again in 2023 with increased grant funding available this year. The scheme launches on 1 January 2023.

The WAV Grant Scheme (WAV23) offers financial aid of up to €17,500 nationwide for the purchase or conversion of a new WAV – and a sliding scale, with lesser monies being available for older cars. Cars older than 6 years will not qualify for this Scheme. Applicants will also get complimentary disability awareness training to support to service provision.

The scheme is available nationwide to any individual or company wishing to purchase or convert an ‘internal combustible engine’ (ICE) WAV or an electric WAV (eWAV). Applications must be made online via the online application form. Further information about the WAV 23 Grant Scheme, including information on how to apply, can be found here.
