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 this year.
The WAV Grant Scheme (WAV22) offers financial aid of up to €7,500 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. The Grant Scheme also offers training assistance to all successful applicants.
The Scheme will be available to anyone who wishes to purchase or convert an ‘internal combustible engine’ (ICE) WAV or an electric WAV (eWAV).
As ever, the criteria will be subject to review at regular intervals throughout the duration of the Grant Scheme.
Further information about the WAV 22 Grant Scheme which launches today 1 January 2022, including information on how to apply, can be found here.
