Seniors, disabled might get city funding for home improvements

$2.4M from senior levels of government

Neco Cockburn, The Ottawa Citizen

Low-income seniors and people with disabilities who want to fix their homes may soon be eligible for thousands of dollars in funding. Landlords looking to make buildings and units more accessible should also qualify for a program that would offer grants and forgivable loans, say city staff. The program aims to keep recipients living independently.
