From 1 April 2015 the council adopted a revised private sector financial assistance policy which offers a combination of loans and targeted grant assistance aimed at helping the most vulnerable groups to support, repair and improve their homes.
This policy is designed to support private home owners and residents in Norwich by helping them to:
- maintain their independence
- achieve better housing and living conditions
- bring long-term empty homes back into use for housing need.
The council has a number of financial assistance packages available to those eligible including Disabled Facilities Grants, dementia grants and other discretionary loans. Financial assistance may also be available to private landlords.
