Amy Young Barrier Removal Program

Program Details

The Amy Young Barrier Removal Program (AYBRP) provides one-time grants of up to $20,000 to Persons with Disabilities who need modifications to increase accessibility and eliminate hazardous conditions in their home. Program beneficiaries must include a Person with Disability, must have a household income that does not exceed 80% of the Area Median Family Income, and may be tenants or homeowners.

The Department funds the AYBRP through multiple nonprofit organizations and local governments who process intake applications, verify eligibility, and oversee construction. People with Disabilities looking for accessibility modifications must contact the Administrators directly to learn more about how to apply.
