Maintenance grant after starting university

If my household income is too high to be eligible for a maintenance grant when my son starts uni, but the following year it drops to a level where we are eligible, can he then get one or is it too late?

    He can apply every year he is eligible. He may be eligible for a loan if not a grant.
