HUD’s Office of Multifamily Housing Programs is pleased to provide a new resource that explains how many simple, low-cost modifications can make a huge difference to the comfort and safety of older adults in multifamily housing, allowing them to thrive in independent housing well into old age.
The resource provides a list of modification ideas—from simply installing nightlights to physical alterations such as widening doorways and leveling thresholds. It also explains the responsibilities of owners under the law and lists programs and sources of funding that owners and service coordinators can explore to assist with home modification for residents.
