So, there aren't necessarily any grants for remodeling the home; however, the federal government offers financing for you to be able to make the repairs or to modernize the home for a disabled person through a section 203(k) loan. Usually, the terms of the loan are relatively good and are typically guaranteed by the government, meaning that your chances of approval are high. The FHA also has a title 1 home improvement loan program if you need additional money as well.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
