  1. I am disabled and in need of several costly renovations to my home so that I’m able to live independent. As of now, my husband or our four children help me care for myself and our household needs. My chronic illnesses have left me all but emaciated. If there are any grants that are available to help absorb some of the cost to renovate our home, please send me the requirements. Thanks for your help.
