The senior population in America is growing rapidly. The U.S. Census Bureau projects the number of senior citizens, age 65 and older, will jump from 12.5% in 1990 to 17.7% in 2020. That’s a 41.6% increase. Indiana’s U.S.Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development Office wants to help rural Hoosier seniors stay in their homes, so they can maintain their independence and dignity for as long as possible.
With this goal in mind, Indiana’s USDA Rural Development Office has up to $200,000 in grant funds available for Hoosier seniors (age 62 and older) living in rural communities to use on home repairs or home accessibility modifications. Qualified homeowners must apply by June 30, 2012 for these grant funds. Grants of up to $7,500 are available.
The eligibility requirements for grant funds include:
