The Senior Citizens Assistance Program

This program provides assistance to senior homeowners (age 65+) who would like to remain in their own homes, but cannot afford necessary repairs.

The funding covers repairs that are a threat to health and safety, which includes repairs to roofing, plumbing and heating. Cosmetic repairs are not covered.

A forgivable grant of up to $6,500 is available.

Am I Eligible?

To be eligible for the grant: 

  • You or your spouse must be at least 65 years old
  • Your household income must be below established income ceilings (based on your household size and where you live)
  • You must own and have lived in your home for at least one year.
