UD Supports Home Modification Grants...
CDS offers home modifications to qualified individuals with paralysis-causing conditions
A ramp instead of stairs, a reachable light switch, a wider doorway – small changes to a home can make all the difference to people with paralysis-causing conditions.
Unfortunately, modifications, whether simple or fairly involved, can be too expensive for many. Costs could run to “many tens of thousands of dollars,” says Beth Mineo, director of the University of Delaware’s Center for Disabilities Studies (CDS).
To help cover those costs, the center’s Delaware Assistive Technology Initiative (DATI) created Nowhere Else to Turn, designed to enable qualifying Delawareans to achieve greater independence, freedom of movement and safety. Supported by a $75,000 grant from the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, a leading nonprofit in researching and treating paralysis, Nowhere Left to Turn is now accepting applications for financial assistance in acquiring home modifications.
Those with interest can access the Nowhere Else to Turn home modification application form here and the application informational packet here. A list of qualifying paralysis-causing conditions is located here.
DEMA Invitation to Public-Private-Partnership Workshop
The Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) is initiating an effort to form a Public-Private Partnership to encourage and assist the business segment in the areas of preparedness, response, and recovery efforts. The better prepared the private sector is for emergencies, the more effective the response can be from the public sector, making recovery more effective, helping to put businesses back to normal or the "new normal".
To kick off this effort, DEMA is inviting you and/or representatives of your organization to attend a workshop August 23 & 24 at Tidewater Utilities in Dover. It is conducted by the Mid-Atlantic Center for Emergency Management.
The goal is to encourage and enhance collaboration, coordination, and communication between the public and private sectors on the subject of disaster readiness. Your participation as a leader of the business community can assist in the growth of preparedness. As communities working together, we can better prepare our communities and state for the unexpected and unknown.
