Councils will be given an extra £68m to help thousands of disabled people make adaptations to their homes.
The Disabled Facilities Grant will fund more than?280,000 home adaptions such as stair-lifts, level access showers, wet rooms, winches, grab rails and ramps.
Minister for care, Helen Whately, said: 'This grant will help hundreds of thousands of disabled people across England to live more independently in their own homes and improve their quality of life.
'I know this year has been incredibly difficult for disabled people in particular and I’m pleased that, on the International Day of People with Disabilities, we’re able to provide this additional funding.
The new funding is in addition to the £505m paid to councils in May 2020, through the Disabled Facilities Grant.
