The County’s participation in the Access Home Modification Program began in year 2002. The purpose of the program is to assist low to moderate income persons with permanent disabilities to modify their homes, thereby increasing their independence and ability to function effectively. The program is funded with state revenues distributed by the Department of Community and Economic Development. At the present time, the County contracts with the Center for Independent Living to manage the program. The CIL processes applications for assistance and coordinates the installation of the improvements through private contractors. The program is also available to City of York residents.
