From that website:

Aging In Place Efficiently partners with qualified older adults to help them remain in their homes for as long as possible. Improvements focus on three areas: comfort, lower energy bills, and home safety. ​


​Home Improvements

The home improvements offered will depend on the needs of each homeowner. A licensed energy auditor, an occupational therapist, and a social worker will help determine the best options for your home within the available budget.

Examples of potential home improvements include:

  • insulation in walls and attics

  • weatherization

  • appliance upgrades

  • grab bars in bathrooms

  • handrails and ramps

  • improved lighting

  • Live in a single-family home within the city of Ann Arbor (Not sure? Check out the City Address Search to determine eligibility)

  • Be at least 60 years of age at the time of application

  • Have a monthly income at or below 80% of the Area Median Income for Ann Arbor (see the City's website for details)

​If you meet these basic requirements and would like to learn more, we invite you to​ join us for an AIP Forum in conjunction with ​​the Turner Senior Resource Center. This forum will be held via Zoom on June 29th from 2-3pm.
