Private sector housing grants

You are here

We can sometimes provide grants and assistance for eligible homeowners, landlords and private tenants of properties within the Ipswich borough boundary. Ipswich is in the process of updating our grants and are moving to manage the grants within the council, ‘Independent Living Ipswich’ from the 1 December 2020. During this move, OT assessments will continue, and applications can be submitted to Orbit homecare and repair, however, there may be a delay in processing applications. Applications received during this time will be recorded and you will be contacted within six weeks to explain how your application will be managed. Applicants may choose to engage the services of other agencies to manage their grant journey
