Financing Home Accessibility Products

Let's face it: not everyone can afford to plunk down the cash for a new stair lift or wheelchair lift. That doesn't change the fact that people of all income levels have accessibility needs.

Fortunately, Transitions is here to help with some great ideas about financing. First, check out your grant options. Hart-Supported Living Grant is for Kentuckians with disabilities to request funds for support so that they can continue to live in their homes. Area Agencies on Aging and Independent Living/Disability (AAAI) lends services and support, as well. Plus, Money Follows the Person Grant (Kentucky Transitions) is yet another option to explore.

Finally, if you don't qualify for grant assistance, consider a loan. Spring Leaf Financial services our installation area and provides personal loans of up to $10,000 for home modifications and equipment. Kentucky Assistive Technology Loan Corporation (KATLC) offers low interest loans for home modifications or equipment that will improve the quality of life or increase independence of its dwellers. Rural Repair and Rehabilitation offers loans to the very low income toward repairing, improving, or modernizing homes and removing health and safety hazards.

Chances are, one of these options can help you afford the accessibility product you need. Call Transitions and let us walk you through the process and answer your initial questions about how to get help.
