Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission's Home Modification Loan Program
This state funded loan program began in 1999 and has assisted hundreds of Massachusetts residents by providing low or no interest loans to make access and safety modifications to the residence of elders and individuals with disabilities. The intent of the program is to allow people to remain in their homes and live more independently in their communities.
These services are funded in whole/part by Title III funds through the Older Americans Act. Persons receiving service under the Older Americans Act must be provided with an opportunity to make a voluntary, confidential donation toward the cost of that service. Any donations received are put directly into program enhancement, and allow more people to be served. There is no obligation to contribute, and any contribution you make is voluntary and will in no way influence service delivery.
