Minor Home Safety Repair Program

The Minor Home Repair and Safety Program was developed to help homeowners sustain their efforts to care for themselves and/or a relative who resides in the home, by providing funds for the purchase of materials to assist in removing health and safety hazards and to provide nonstructural environmental modifications.

The Minor Home Repair and Safety Program provides assistance in making modifications to homes for safety and accessibility purposes in order to allow seniors to remain in their homes for as long as possible, avoiding long-term care facilities. The program accomplishes this by focusing its efforts on the following categories and items:

  • Ingress/Egress (wheelchair ramps, hand rails, stairs, etc.)
  • Bathroom Safety (raise toilet seat, transfer bench, grab bars, etc.)
  • Extreme Temperature Safety (window units)
 
The Minor Home Repair and Safety Program does not address major mechanical and structural repairs such as roofing, electrical, plumbing, or foundations. Cosmetic improvements are not eligible. Costs of labor are not an allowable expense of this program.
