The Accessibility Ramp Program provides for the installation of exterior wheelchair ramps in order to improve the accessibility of a home.
Eligibility is based on household income.
Rental properties are not eligible.
Through this program, eligible work is assigned to an OCED-approved contractor.
There is no immediate cost to the homeowner, but the cost of the project will result in a 0% interest property lien that lasts for 5 years.
There are no payments required until the time of sale or change in ownership. The property lien is forgiven after a 5-year period following completion of the work. As long as the owner resides in the property for the full 5-year period, the lien will be forgiven, and no payment required.
Please contact us at 734-544-3008 if you have any questions about the Accessibility Ramp Program.
Accessibility ramp grants will be limited to a one-time assistance per dwelling during a five year period.
