Access Grant Program (City of Urbana)
The Access Grant Program helps eliminate physical barriers that keep a person with a disability from using his or her home. Eligible households may receive up to $5,000 of home improvements from a non-repayable grant. Typical projects funded through the Access Grant Program include ramp installation, bathroom modifications, and door widening. Access grants may be used to renovate single-family homes as well as units in duplexes and multiple-family buildings. Eligibility requirements:
- The applicant may be either a homeowner, renter or trust deed recipient.
- Household income may not exceed 80 percent of area median family income.
- The property must be located within the Urbana corporate limits.
The Urbana Grants Management Division will accept applications throughout the year subject to funding availability. Call (217) 384-2447 for more information.
