Home Repair and Modification Assistance

Home repairs can be both costly and urgent.

And, if you have changing mobility and ability needs related to aging, injury, or emerging disability, you may find your home no longer accommodates your needs. Help may be available, especially if you or someone in your home is a veteran, senior, or person with a disability, and your household income is limited. The availability and scope of repair and modification assistance varies widely depending on your location. If you are struggling to afford necessary home repairs or need help making modifications to your home – such as installing grab bars or wheelchair ramps, please call the WHRC Hotline so we can help you determine if there is a program in your area that would be a match for your needs.

Please note that due to COVID-19 many repair assistance programs are limited in their ability to complete home repairs in person at this time, but you may be able to sign up for a waitlist if assistance is not currently available in your area.

Do you need help now? Use our online portal or the hotline number to contact us.
