If your home has lead pipes and plumbing that need to be replaced, or you have a recent water quality test result that shows above normal levels of lead in your water supply, you may qualify for a Lead Pipe Replacement Grant.  

The level of grant you may qualify for is based on your gross household income.

Then, if you meet the criteria please print out and fill in the Lead Grant Scheme Application Form  or  Lead Grant Scheme Application Form Irish  , and return it to the Water Services Department, Fingal County Council, Civic Offices, Blanchardstown, Dublin 15, D15 W638.

If your home has a private well supply that is in need of works, you may qualify to apply for a well grant.

The approved costs are calculated by Fingal and are an estimate of the reasonable cost of the works.

The amount of the grant you may qualify for is 75% of the approved cost (or revised approved cost)  or  €2,031.58  -  whichever is the lesser

Proposed works must exceed €634.87.
