Aging in place

The Aging in Place program offers grants to low-income to moderate-income senior homeowners that allow them to age in place.

Aging in place is the ability to live in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level. The current city budget provides $1.5 million combined over the next two years to help seniors stay in their homes.
