Are grants, etc. available to help with the cost of street replacement in front of our home? Are grants available to help with the cost of street replacement in front of our home?

We live in the city limits and the city kicks in only a small percentage of our cost.  We went to a city meeting regarding the street repaving and our estimated share is just under $9,000.  That's a heck of a lot of money for two folks on retirement.  This is so worrisome for us.  I have so far not been able to locate any kind of grant help.  But thanks for replying to our inquiry.

I don't understand exactly what you mean by "street replacement."  If you are talking about the public road in front of your house, that would be covered by your city or the local department of transportation. I would suggest you contact them if this is an urgent need they might not know about. If you don't get a helpful response you might also consider writing a letter to the editor of your local newspaper and explain the situation. Sometimes they have staff devoted to local problems. 

For a better understanding of grants this article about grants and where to find them is recommended.

Update:  If at least one of you is 62 or older, check out the Department of Agriculture website. They do provide actual grants to seniors for home repairs in rural areas. (You'd be surprised at the pretty suburban areas they classify as rural..).  You should also check out this article about Grants for Seniors and this review of Grants for Home Repair.
