Minor home modifications are adaptations to the home environment that facilitate safer mobility and greater ease of access throughout the home for individuals with more significant physical limitations and related needs. Minor Home Modifications are not necessarily minor; they can range in scope from a simple grab bar in a shower to help an individual avoid falling all the way to widening doorways, adapting bedrooms and bathrooms for wheelchairs, and building substantial wheelchair ramps for safe and easy access in and out of homes. In the HCS program, an individual with a professionally identified needs for such modifications is eligible for up to $7,500 per lifetime for the costs associated with such modifications, including parts, labor, and warranties.
