Who is Eligible?

Any homeowner who is a frail elder or has a disability, has a household member who has a disability, or rents to an individual with a disability (in a building with fewer than 10 units) may apply for this loan. The residence's owner must apply for the loan. Some landlords may be eligible for a 3% loan for a tenant with a disability.

In determining who is eligible:

  • Income guidelines are based on the total gross household income.
  • The unit requiring modifications must be the primary, principal residence of the individual with the disability.
  • The modifications to be made to the residence must be necessary to allow the beneficiary to remain in the home and must specifically relate to their ability to function on a daily basis.
  • The homeowner cannot have previously obtained an HMLP loan for the same property.
