The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Rural Development program offers loans of up to $20, and grants of up to $7, to low-income homeowners in rural areas who need to renovate. To qualify, you must have family income below 50 percent of your area's median income. The interest rate is capped at 1 percent. Grants are available only to homeowners who are 62 or . The Home Renovation Incentive (HRI) scheme enables homeowners or landlords to claim tax relief on repairs, renovations or improvement work that is carried out on their main home or rental property by tax-compliant contractors and that is subject to % VAT. With effect from 1 January , HRI has been extended to local authority tenants who have written consent .

The Home Access Program is an initiative started by Handi-Ramp, a company that has been manufacturing handicap accessible ramps since Helping individuals and families find realtors who can assist in the search for a handicap accessible home or consultants who can modify a current home is the premise of the program. Home Improvements and Structural Alterations (HISA) This grant provides medically necessary improvements and structural alterations to Veterans/Servicemembers’ primary residence for the following purposes: Allowing entrance to or exit from their homes; Use of essential lavatory and sanitary facilities (e.g. roll in showers).

Grants are means-tested, which means they go to the people who need them most. Adaptations fitted in council owned properties are currently funded through us. We will look at the income and savings of the disabled person and their spouse or partner, and compare that to a standard assessment of the household’s basic needs. If you are a home owner or a private tenant you may be entitled to a disabled facilities grant to help pay for the work. However these grants are means tested and you may need to undertake a financial assessment (unless the adaptation is for a child or young person under 19 which are exempt). We can provide support to you through the process.
