Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis’ Aging in Place (AIP) program serves Shelby and Fayette County homeowners over the age of 60 through critical home repairs, accessibility improvements, mobility modifications and weatherization enhancements to help them continue to live in their own homes longer.
The type of work done through the AIP program can include installing wheelchair ramps, grabs bars, handrails and ADA height toilets; and/or repairing/replacing plumbing, subfloors, water heaters, HVAC systems or roof systems.
Habitat utilizes both private and public funding – including the SeniorTrust/ElderTrust Grant and may also include TN Housing Development Agency, CDBG and City of Memphis grants – for some of these projects, and abides by all federal, state and local procurement guidelines set forth. Memphis Habitat accepts RFQs (Requests for Qualifications) on an ongoing basis.
Applicable city, state, and federal regulations such as, but not limited to, Section 3, Segregated Facility, Section 109, and E.O. 11246 are required.

The funding for this project was provided through a grant awarded by the Davidson County Chancery Court, Part III from the SeniorTrust/ElderTrust settlement (Case No. 11-1548-III) and through a contract administered by the Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability.
The Aging in Place program receives additional financial support from a variety of sources, including The City of Memphis, Division of Housing and Community Development; the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development; and The Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati.
