If you need to make special modifications to your home, you can apply to the municipality for a grant to cover either some or all of the cost.

It is also possible to apply to the Norwegian State Housing Bank for a grant for project planning and evaluation in advance.

An assessment will be made of your particular needs for home modifications and of your household’s overall finances.

Cooperating authorities

The Norwegian State Housing Bank.

Guidelines – applying for, or receiving the service

The easiest method is to register and send an application electronically. The municipality can help you fill out the application.


The appendices are listed under Section 8 of the application form.

Administrative procedure

The municipality will obtain the information necessary for making a decision on the case. We will then come to a decision. You will normally receive an explanation together with the notification of the decision. You will always receive an explanation if there is a possibility that you will be dissatisfied with the decision. If an explanation is not included, you can obtain one by enquiring with the municipality within the deadline for appeals to the decision.

Time taken to consider the application

The municipality is obligated to process the case as soon as possible. If the municipality cannot reach a decision on your case within one month, you will be informed in writing of the reason as to why, and you will also be provided with details about when it expects to make a decision.

Possibilities to appeal; procedure

If you are dissatisfied with the decision, you can submit an appeal within three weeks from the date on which you received it. Explain what you are dissatisfied with and why you believe the decision should be changed. Provide justification for this with additional information, if necessary. The municipal appeals board serves as the administrative appeal body.
