Housing and Home Improvement Programs

Sampson County Department of Aging has a housing and home improvement program with several funding sources. Steven Wilson, Program Manager. 

Home and Community Block Grant Program
We provide minor home repairs, build wheelchair ramps, and install grab bars and hand rails. Clients must be 60 years and older to qualify.  Priority is given to low income households.
United Way Wheelchair Ramp Program 
We build wheelchair ramps for people who are under 60 and disabled. Click here to view a standard incline chart:

Urgent Repair Program
When funding is available, eligible paticipants may qualify for the Urgent Repair Program. This program helps alleviate housing conditions which pose an imminent threat to the life or safety of very low-income homeowners with special needs. This program may provide accessibility modifications and other repairs necessary to prevent displacement of homeowners with special needs, such as frail elderly and persons with disabilities.  We can rectify deficiencies including: imminent structural system failures (e.g. porches, steps and roofs); ramps, hand rails and grab bars; kitchen and bathroom adaptations, and door alterations.
All programs have an application process. To see if you or your loved one qualifies for one of our programs, please call Angela Faircloth at 910-592-4653.
