Home Repair / Accessibility Modification Programs
This program is for low income families who own their own home and meet qualifying factors but can't afford needed urgent home repairs or handicap accessibility modifications. To qualify for these programs anyone living in the home must meet a qualifier. Qualifiers include: Disabled, Veteran, Elderly (62+), Single parent household with a child living in the home full time, large family household with 5+ people, or a child under the age of 6 is living in the home that was built before 1978 and the home could contain lead hazards. The main focus of this program is to assist those who need home repairs or handicap modifications that are a hazard to ones safety and/or security, or without the repairs the situation could force them out of their home. For those who fall just outside income requirements then we also have a Community Funded Home Repair Program. The primary funding source for the Community Funds is our amazing partner the United Way of Davidson County.
