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

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.

Eligible participants are individuals that meet the criteria below:
  • The individual (homeowner) owns and occupies the residential unit receiving assistance as a primary residence;
  • The homeowner must be sixty years of age or older; and
  • The homeowner has a household income that does not exceed one hundred percent (100%) of the area median income.

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