In Carteret County, the Housing and Home Improvement (HHI) funding is intended to enable older adults to secure and/or maintainmaximum independence and dignity by helping them meet their basic need for adequate shelter. Some older adults have a need for basic appliances and furnishings. Others may need housing modifications and special design features to enable easy access to accommodate a physical handicap. Minor renovations and repairs may need to be done to a home to lessen the risk to personal health and safety of a senior citizen. A maximum of $1500 per household may be spent under this program. Seven (7) senior households are to be served through this program during the current program year.
