The Area Agency on Aging District 7, Inc. offers a home repair program to eligible older adults in our ten-county region. The program is funded by the Ohio Department of Development Housing Trust Fund Housing Assistance Grant Program and the State of Ohio Senior Community Services Program. Partnership is also given from the United States Department of Agriculture Section 504 Program.

Services offered include repair or replacement of heating systems; plumbing systems; hot water tanks; water taps and lines; hazardous electrical systems; severely deteriorated roofs, walls, floors and doors; ramps for handicapped-accessibility; and kitchen and bathroom modifications for handicapped-accessibility. Some restrictions apply for mobile homes.
