Aging in Place: Home Repair for Rural Seniors

Date: June 19, 2013
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 pm EDT
Registration: https://cc.readytalk.com/r/8qxmfagqs5ti

The Housing Assistance Council (HAC) is pleased to invite you to participate in a webinar on home repair and rehab for rural seniors. Twenty-five percent of all rural households are occupied by the elderly. Of those homes, 80 percent are homeowner rather than rental properties. According to 2009 American Housing Survey data, more than 300,000 homes occupied by rural seniors are moderate or severely substandard. Join us for this webinar to learn more about meeting the needs of rural homeowners with repair and weatherization programs. The agenda will feature discussions on using the USDA Section 504 grant program and leveraging weatherization dollars for senior home repair.

For more information, please email Janice Clark at Janice@ruralhome.org.

Presenters include:
  • Nancy Wright, Early County CDC, Blakely, Georgia
  • Janice Daku, Western Maine Community Action, East Wilton, Maine
  • Mike Feinberg, Housing Assistance Council, Washington DC
This webinar is supported by The Atlantic Philanthropies.
