The City of Gaithersburg provides 0% deferred loans to qualified residential property owners who wish to add accessibility modifications to their homes.

Some examples of eligible improvements include but are not limited to:

Providing ramps and no-step entrances to the property

Installing an exterior or interior elevator, lift or stair-glide unit

Widening interior and exterior doorways to a minimum of 32 inches

Installing a walk-in or roll-in shower or tub

Reinforcing bathroom walls

Adding improvements to assist with sensory disabilities

 

To Qualify

Homeowners must work with City staff to obtain all required permits. Homeowners must work with a licensed contractor and must meet the income limits below, adjusted for family size:

What a great program Roy & I love the acronym. This is a great model for the rest of the country to help those address accessibility issues in their home. Kudos to the City of Gaithersburg.

That sounds like a wonderful program for many who probably need it and can use it.

What a great program that is for Gaitersburg residents, Roy.  I know the day is fast approaching when I'm going to need a similar type of project to help keep me from pulling the plumbing out of the walls while trying to get out of the bathtub. . .LOL
