Home Modifications

HAMP (Housing Accessibility Modification Program)
- for renters

"...provides financial assistance to individuals with disabilities so their rental units can be modified to meet their accessibility needs.  Most renovations involve the installation of wheelchair ramps/lifts.  However, we have made renovations to bathrooms and kitchens to allow for greater ease of use."
