HUD Awards $15M in Grants to Help Older Homeowners Age in Place

Through its Older Adults Home Modification Program, the Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded $15 million to local non-profits to pay for home modifications and repairs that will help 1,900 low-income senior households nationwide age in place.

The grantees, which are experienced in providing services to seniors, will deliver home modification services to families in both urban communities and communities with substantial rural populations.

“By providing a pathway for more older adults to stay in their homes, we are helping to improve lives and ensuring the opportunity for seniors to age with dignity,” said HUD Secretary Marcia L. Fudge.
