Revitalize Community Development Corporation (CDC) in Massachusetts has been awarded federal money to assist a program geared towards making the homes of veterans more accessible. The pilot program headed by Revitalize CDC will help rehab and modify the homes of veterans to allow them to age in place comfortably, local radio station WAMC reports.
Revitalize CDC has been awarded $730,000 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Veterans Housing Rehabilitation and Modification Program.
Over the next three years the money will be used to fix up the homes of 51 eligible veterans across the state, according to Revitalize CDC President Colleen Loveless.
