Funding

Paying for your home modifications can be challenging. Renovations are often done in stages and may be funded from more than one source. In addition to using your own money, you can tap other key sources, including governments, charities and insurance. It also may be helpful to connect with an organization focused on your condition. In some cases, various clubs (e.g. Lions, Kinsmen) and church communities may consider funding requests from local residents or church members.
