Grants to New York nonprofit organizations and local government agencies to improve housing accessibility for individuals with disabilities who qualify for Medicaid coverage. Applicants must complete required registrations prior to applying. Funding is intended to assist low- and moderate-income individuals living with disabilities with home adaptations and modifications that allow them to retain independence and avoid institutional care. The Access to Home for Medicaid program has a secondary long-term goal of lowering health care costs.
Eligible participants are individuals that meet the criteria below:
The assisted residential unit must be the primary, permanent residence of the eligible participant. The primary residence may be owner-occupied or a rental unit. Applicants proposing to assist rental units must ensure that the property owner is not otherwise obligated by federal, state, or local law to provide such improvements.
Activities reimbursable by grant funds may only include accessibility modifications designed to address the needs of the person living with a disability. Examples of modifications may include wheelchair ramps and lifts, handrails, doorway widening, and roll-in showers.
