There are some grants for home repair but it depends on where you live and what the repairs are for. Often the assistance you will find is in the form of a loan rather than a grant.

Since you are a senior, you may be able to benefit from an organization called "Rebuilding Together." They are a nonprofit that helps low-income homeowners -- particularly seniors -- by providing free, critical home repairs as well as changes needed for access purposes and upgrades to more efficient appliances. Do an internet search for Rebuilding Together and the name of your county or state to find one near you.

You should also check with your local housing agency as they provide free counseling on lots of topics and might be able to help you directly or refer you to someone who can help. Hope this helps!
