Free Grant for Home Improvement

Updated on September 10, 2011

Grants are not only for students. If you are elderly, disabled, single parent on a low income, you might be eligible for free grant for home improvement.

In today's down economy, grant for home improvement provides financial relief for very needy low-income homeowners in need of home repair and improvement.

There are certain rules and guidelines but they are easy for compliance. As long as you have valid reasons - usually for health or safety reasons, the grant is almost yours and it's free.

Is Free Grant for Really Free?

Yes, it is free. Unlike a loan, there is absolutely no liability for repayment as long as it is used for the purpose agreed upon grant application.

No credit check, no collateral of any kind. Your credit score doesn't really matter here.

Grant for home improvement is meant to help the underprivileged in need of home repair and improvement. Most of these grants are disbursed to low income families who do not qualify for a normal home improvement loan.

Usually only the neediest of all will be eligible for free grant, based on selective assessment of their needs and urgency.

For instance, a disabled on a wheel chair could request for free grant to build a front-door ramp for better accessibility or to repair a leaked gas pipe that could pose a hazard.

Free grant for home improvement makes financing available for home renovation and repair. Essentially, it does help homeowners to increase the equity in their home.

One way to apply for free home improvement grant is to visit www.grants.gov where upon registration you can familiarize yourself, among other types of goverment grants, the eligibility and the requirements to apply for a grant.

Eligibility requirements may vary from state to state so you need to exercise due diligent before you make any request. A home inspection may also be carried out as part of application process to determine whether special priorities should be given.

It's also a good idea to check with your local housing authority if such free grants are available in your community.

Here's the fact, people for all walks of life do receive free grants so take advantage of what the government has put aside for your community.

Of course, you do so if you are really in need of free grant for home improvement.

For single mothers who wish to go back to school, financial aid are also available in the form of grants for single mothers as well as federal student loans.

      I really need this to save my deceased husband's home for my adult disable son, so he will have a home when I am no longer here.
