The Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) Program provides financial assistance in the form of a grant to eligible low-income households to complete home adaptations for independent living.
As a homeowner, you may be eligible for Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) assistance if you or someone in your household has diminished physical abilities and you meet all the application requirements.
Tenants and landlords may also apply to the Home Adaptations for Independence program.
Approved assistance will be either a grant or a forgivable loan. Once your application is approved, you will have 90 days to complete the work from the date of written approval.
