There’s No Place Like Home!
By Linda Surprenant, Western Regional Coordinator, Family TIES of Massachusetts
The Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission’s (MRC) Home Modification Loan Program (HMLP) recently announced some changes which increase the benefits available to eligible households. HMLP now offers income-eligible households loans up to $50,000. Additionally, the program has simplified the loan products offered and now offers 0% interest, deferred payment loans to all income eligible households. Repayment is required only when the home is sold or transferred.
Loans can help finance projects such as:
- Stair lifts and wheelchair lifts
- Kitchen and bathroom adaptations
- Accessory dwelling units
- Home security features including hard-wired alarm systems, safety windows, and fences
