Highland Senior Home Improvement Grants: Apply Here

Up to $500 for exterior home projects for 65+ neighbors in Shreveport’s Highland area. Grants will be reviewed on a monthly basis during Summer 2021 until available funds are allocated.

Thanks to generous donors during Give for Good, applications for Senior Home Improvement Grants are now open.

WHAT: Support for exterior home repairs or improvements up to $500.

WHO: Grants are for neighbors 65 years or older who own and occupy their homes in Highland and are limited to complete a repair. (For those who rent, work that is not traditionally managed by owners may be considered.)

WHEN: Applications will be considered on a rolling basis during Summer 2021 as funding remains available, and we will work with the applicant to ensure the repair is completed as soon as possible, either though hiring a service provider directly or providing a grant to fund a project.

HOW: Applicants must be nominated by a current member or be a current member themselves. We hope this is an opportunity for members to reach out to neighbors and meet their needs, too!

WHERE: Printed forms included in the quarterly newsletter and at neighborhood meetings can be mailed to 520 Olive Street, Shreveport, LA 71104, or applications can be completed online.

For major home repairs and critical emergencies, please contact the Office of Community Development at 318-673-7528 for Rehabilitation Assistance.
