Home Repair and Adaptation
Home Repair and Adaptation:
Pima Council on Aging’s Home Repair program provides minor home repairs and adaptations to low-income homeowners age 60 and over who cannot afford to make repairs on their own. The repairs that PCOA provides help prevent frail, elderly seniors in Pima County from living in unsafe or unsanitary conditions and, in some cases, helps elderly residents continue to live independently in their homes.
The program is funded by the Older Americans Act and Community Development Block Grant funds which are administered by the City of Tucson. Funding is augmented by the contributions of clients who have been helped by the program.
To stretch our funding dollars, PCOA does not help with cosmetic repairs, such as the replacement of ceiling tiles or dry wall. We also don’t provide help with large, expensive repairs such as the installation of all new plumbing, mold abatement, or roof replacement.
Due to limited funding, PCOA is not able to provide help with Major Home Repairs. However, we are able to provide limited help with minor home repairs of a health or safety nature to low-income home owners age 60 and over who have no other resources for assistance.
