Accessibility Grant

2015 Accessibility Grant

CANDO’s Accessibility Grant is an opportunity for property owners or renters with the consent of the property owner to make their home more accessible. The grant is targeted to help our neighbors who are in need to make repairs to existing wheelchair ramps, rails or anything that would make their own home more accessible.  CANDO offers one time $1,000 grant towards the cost of the accessibility project. CANDO has allocated $10,000 to the Accessibility Grant for 2015.

Property owners, both homeowners and or owners of residential rental property as well as renters with the consent of the property owner, are invited to submit brief proposals to CANDO. The winning proposals are selected at random from among all those submitted. The winners are expected to complete their projects in the summer and early fall of 2015, then to submit receipts and photographs to CANDO. All projects are to be on the exterior of the structure only, and are to be visible from the street or sidewalk. To apply please print and complete the application below or stop by our office for a hard copy at 3736 Chicago Avenue South.
