Sometimes, our neighbors just need a little helping hand.
In 2012, we created a grant program to help our members make critical repairs and accessibility modifications to their manufactured or floating homes so that more manufactured and floating home communities could retain their aging populations. Without repairs and renovations, many in this age bracket have to leave their homes and rely on others to furnish them shelter.
The goal of the grant is to promote aging in place and improve the quality of life for manufactured home park and floating home marina residents in Oregon through providing accessibility improvements and essential repairs to the homes of residents with limited incomes.
The improvements may consist of either essential home repairs or accessibility improvements (cosmetic or luxury improvements are not eligible for this program).
Applicants are limited to $2,000 projects with OSTA paying ¾ of the total cost, not to exceed $1,500 per project.
The Helping Hands Grant Program is funded soley by OSTA members’ annual dues and donations.
