Home Modification Grants for People with Disabilities – HomeAdvisor

If you have accessibility needs, you can stay where you’re comfortable with home modification. A growing number of service professionals and designers are focused on making home convenient for all abilities. This means more opportunity than ever to renovate, rather than relocate – and there are options for homeowners who don’t have the funds to undergo a major remodel.

This guide provides information on available grants to help improve your quality of life. The cost to remodel for a disability modification averages about $4,350, but can be much more, depending on the type of work you need done. If you aren’t sure exactly where to start, a home safety assessment and disability planner near you can help.

To get an idea of the funding you’ll need, here’s a look at common upgrades that people opt for:

  • Cost to build a wheelchair ramp: $950-$3,000
  • Cost to repair a wheelchair ramp: $560-$2,000
  • How much an elevator costs: $2,600-$6,303
  • Cost to maintain, repair or replace an elevator or lift: $180-$530
  • Cost to get a building permit: $410-$2,230
