Improving Quality of Life by Improving Access to Private Homes
The Home Access Program (HAP) provides home entry and bathroom accessibility modifications for low-income Vermonters with physical disabilities. These modifications increase opportunities for participation in the civic and social life of the community.
The Home Access Program includes:
Home entry and bathroom modifications for people with disabilities whose income is 80 percent of median income (income limit chart). The modifications are designed with the individual in mind and may be as simple as an entry ramp to a house, an accessible shower, or even a handheld shower attachment.
Financial assistance for nonprofit housing providers for accessibility modifications in their affordable rental housing.

The Home Access Program has a long waiting list because the need is greater than funding allows. HAP staff will work closely with you to identify and secure other resources and funding to make sure your needs are met as quickly as possible.
