everyone should be able to access their home
We'll be taking applications for Wheelchair Ramps starting March 1 2023.
Habitat for Humanity Quad Cities has a one of a kind program in the QC for building wheelchair accessible ramps for people in need in the Quad Cities area. Launched in 2018, this program fills a great need in our community. From aging in place, to individuals with a temporary need for assistance, these modular ramps are constructed in the Habitat warehouse and assembled on location.
To qualify for our ramp program, the applicant must meet the following criteria: resident of Rock Island County, IL or Scott County, IA, own and live in their home, and have current homeowner's insurance. Unfortunately, we are not able to build ramps on rental property. The applicant will also need to meet household income limits which will be determined using HUD guidelines. There must be enough space on the property to construct a safe ramp. This will be determined after the application is accepted and other criteria are met. Lastly, a $15 fee per adult will be required for background checks to complete the qualifying process.
There is a sliding fee for our ramps of $0- $500 based on household income. Monthly payments are accepted. Habitat for Humanity Quad Cities retains the right to remove the ramp and reuse it for other purposes when the homeowner no longer needs it.
