Tell me about the Emergency Repairs for Elderly Program ?

Emergency Repairs for the Elderly is a program for people aged 60 or older who own their own home and have limited income.  Eligible applicants may get help with emergency repairs with grant money or a low interest loan.  You must apply for the Emergency Repair program.  Your application takes time to process.  While the program has helped many seniors, repairs may not happen quickly.  The Emergency Repair for the Elderly program is very popular and in addition to age and income requirements there is a waiting list.
