Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month: Ramp Up

INDIANA – Ramps are among the most common modifications made or requested by homeowners with a household member who has a mobility impairment or uses a wheelchair.

Ramps can accommodate various physical needs and requirements, increase safety, reduce the risk of falling, and help maintain a person’s independence. They also allow for aging in place in the home.

However, the cost of installing a ramp is often a barrier for homeowners. Ramp Up Indiana provides grants to not-for-profit organizations to install exterior ramps in homes occupied by people who need to improve their accessibility.
