WEST CHESTER (May 19, 2017) – State Senator Andy Dinniman announced today that the Housing Partnership of Chester County (HPCC) will receive $100,000 in state funding to provide home access modifications to residents in need.

“These funds can go a long way in helping those with disabilities make accessibility and mobility improvements in their homes,” Dinniman said. “I want to thank the Housing Partnership of Chester County for making this and so many other important programs available. Such community-based organizations and programs improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods and continue to make Chester County a great place to live for all our residents.”

The funds, which come through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development’s Keystone Communities Program, are designed to encourage the creation of partnerships between the public and private sectors in the community, support local initiatives that grow and stabilize neighborhoods and communities, ensure social and economic diversity, and enhance the overall quality of life for residents.

In Chester County, the funds will support HPCC’s Home Modification Program, which provides assistance to low- and moderate-income residents with disabilities in making their current homes more accessible. The program, which is open to eligible renters and homeowners, assists with a wide range of adaptive modifications and upgrades including, but are not limited to, handicap accessible ramps, lifts, door and hallway widening, kitchen and bathroom modifications, visual doorbells, audio phones and visual phone signalers.

The funding comes as part of $3.8 million in total funding approved for 30 community realization projects across the Commonwealth.

“This $3.8 million in funding will have a tremendous positive effect throughout the commonwealth in projects ranging from accessible housing projects to important business façade improvements,” said Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin. “Pennsylvania continues to support the economic recovery and well-being of our communities through important programs like Keystone Communities.”
