Accessibility Ramp Program

The OCED Ramp installation waitlist is not accepting new applications. The waitlist form at the bottom of this page is currently closed.  Unfortunately, we do not know when the Ramp waitlist will be open again.

The Accessibility Ramp Program offers funding for the installation of exterior wheelchair ramps in order to improve the accessibility of a home. Homes must be owner-occupied to qualify for the program. Manufactured homes are eligible for this program on a case-by-case basis. The program provides funding for the material and labor cost to install a ramp for homeowners throughout the Urban County jurisdictions. Household income must be at or below 80% of the area median income.

All accessibility projects shall include a property lien, which covers the cost of installationThe terms of the property lien shall be in the form of a deferred, zero percent interest loan that is forgiven at the rate of one-fifth per year for a five year period following project completion. After five years the lien is 100% forgiven.

Rental properties are not eligible for this Program.
