Funds available to make homes accessible
Is your home difficult to access because of your physical disabilities? If you meet income-eligibility requirements and need minor repairs to improve your home’s accessibility, you may qualify for Volusia County’s Basic Accessibility Improvements Program.

The Basic Accessibility Improvements Program, administered by the county’s Community Assistance Division, provides grants of up to $5,000 to widen doors and install wheelchair ramps and grab bars.

Applicants must demonstrate that they meet income eligibility requirements and have owned and occupied the home for at least one year. The home’s just value, as determined by the Volusia County Property Appraiser, cannot exceed $225,000.

The program is not available within the city limits of Daytona Beach, Deltona, Ponce Inlet and Port Orange.
