Home Modification Program (HMP) – Provincial Administered by NLHC
Through Newfoundland and Labrador Housing Corporation (NLHC), HMP is designed to provide funding to assist homeowners with low-to-moderate income who require accessibility changes to their residences, to enable individuals to remain in their own homes for a longer period.
Enabling Accessibility Fund – Federal
The Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF) provides funding for projects that make Canadian communities and workplaces more accessible for persons with disabilities. EAF aims to create more opportunities for persons with disabilities to take part in community activities, programs and services, or to access employment.
Accessible Vehicle Funding
Accessible Vehicle Funding was established to reduce costs associated with disability and provide an accessible transportation option to individuals and families throughout the Province.
The program supports individuals or families to acquire or adapt personal vehicles for accessibility. This could include installation of hand controls or modifying vans to be equipped with lifts and ramps.
