Grant money available for ADA improvements

BISMARCK—The Industrial Commission of North Dakota has approved $50,000 in grants to renovate properties occupied by low-income people with physical disabilities.

Administered by the North Dakota Housing Finance Agency, the Rehab Accessibility Program grants typically fund improvements such as wheelchair ramps, door levers, walk-in/roll-in showers, grab bars and widening doorways.

About a dozen households are expected to benefit from these property improvements in the upcoming year, a news release said.

Eligible applicants must earn less than 80 percent of the county median income. A grant of up to $4,000 may be awarded with a limit of one grant per property in a fiscal year. Matching funds of at least 25 percent of the total project cost are required.
