Grants to New York nonprofits organizations and local governments to assist senior citizens with critical home repairs that help prevent and correct health and safety hazards. Funding is intended to support home repairs for individuals over the age of 60 who lack the financial means to cover the cost of the project.

The Residential Emergency Services to Offer (Home) Repairs to the Elderly (RESTORE) program provides financial resources to assist senior citizen homeowners with the cost of addressing emergencies and code violations that pose a threat to their health and safety or affect the livability of their home. Assistance for the cost of these critical repairs will enable seniors to continue to live independently in their homes.

    An eligible participant must meet the following criteria:

    • Owns and occupies the residential unit receiving assistance as a primary residence.
    • Must be sixty years of age or older.
    • Household income not to exceed one hundred percent (100%) of the area median income.

    Grant funds may be used to assist homeowners with emergency repairs or addressing code violations. An eligible emergency repair eliminates a hazardous condition or deficiency that poses an immediate threat to the life, health, or safety of the elderly homeowner.
