Grants Available to Make Housing Accessible

BISMARCK, ND – Grants are available from North Dakota Housing Finance Agency (NDHFA) to make accessibility improvements to properties occupied by individuals with physical disabilities.

“NDHFA’s Rehab Accessibility Program (RAP) allows individuals with physical limitations to affordably make modifications to their home that will allow them to live more comfortably,” said Jolene Kline, NDHFA executive director.

Recipients of the grant dollars can earn no more than 80 percent of Area Median Income, which varies by county. The maximum qualifying income for a single individual is $39,440 to $45,040.

Eligible improvements include the installation of wheelchair ramps, door levers, walk-in/roll-in showers or grab bars, and widening of doorways. The funds can be used to upgrade either single- or multi-family housing units. The improvements made must address the accessibility needs of the disabled household member.

A maximum of $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. The NDHFA Advisory Board approved making $50,000 available for the program.

For an application or more information on RAP, contact NDHFA at (800) 292-8621 or hfainfo@nd.gov.
