CADDO PARISH WHEELCHAIR RAMP ASSISTANCE PROGRAM NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS

 

Caddo Parish, LA – The application period for the Caddo Parish Wheelchair Ramp Assistance Program officially opened August 5.

 

The program was introduced and approved by the Caddo Parish Commission in 2022, and is funded through generated revenue from a partnership with the Capital Area Finance Authority’s first-time homebuyers’ program.

 

“We recognize that there is a population, especially within our senior citizens, that experiences mobility issues and difficulty with access to homes and businesses,” said Caddo Commissioner Steven Jackson. “The wheelchair ramp program is designed to help seniors and those with mobility challenges to have easier and safer access to their homes,” said Jackson.

 

In order to qualify for the program, applicants must be a resident of Caddo Parish, be 65 years or older or have a verifiable disability, and be at or below 80 percent of the average median income (AMI).

 

There is a limited supply of ramps available. For more information and to schedule an appointment to apply, citizens may contact the Caddo Council on Aging at 318-676-7900.
