Grants to New York nonprofit organizations and local government agencies to improve housing accessibility for individuals with disabilities that qualify for Medicaid coverage. Eligible projects include home adaptations and modifications that allow individuals to retain independence and avoid institutional care.
This program provides financial assistance to make dwelling units accessible for low- and moderate-income persons receiving Medicaid and living with a disability. Assistance with the cost of adapting homes to meet the needs of those with disabilities will enable individuals to safely and comfortably live in their residences instead of residing in an institutional setting. 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 three 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 Access to Home for Medicaid Recipient funds are not used to replace other resources available to building owners. Owners of rental units who are obligated to provide accessibility improvements as a condition of receiving other governmental assistance may not use Access to Home for Medicaid Recipients funds to pay for those improvements.
Grant funds may be used to assist homeowners to complete accessibility modifications to adapt or retrofit homes for persons with disabilities. Rehabilitation activities reimbursable by grant funds may only include accessibility modifications designed to address the needs of the person with disabilities or substantial difficulty with daily living activity due to aging. Examples include: wheelchair ramps and lifts, handrails, doorway widening, and roll-in showers.
