Small changes have been made to the qualifying criteria for the Housing Aid for Older People Grant.
At Monday's meeting of the Wexford Borough Municipal District district manager Angela Laffan said the main change was the increase in the age of eligibility from 60 to 66 years but she said that a lower age limit can apply at the discretion of the council.
Another change was that in terms of a couple both had to be aged 66 years to qualify but again the council could use its discretion.
