WASHINGTON, DC (March 3, 2021) – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH) has issued a notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) for their Older Adults Home Modification Grant Program. Under this program, OLHCHH will issue grants to nonprofit organizations and state, county, special district, and city/township governments. Grants will be available to deliver low-barrier, high-impact, low-cost, and person-centered home modifications programs to enable seniors to live in their primary residence independently for as long as possible. Total funding for the grants is $30 million and will be split among the grantees. At least 50% of funding will be made available to communities with substantial rural populations.
