I'm happy to say that there are a number of resources out there that may be able to help you. This article about Grants for Historic Buildings is a good place to start. It provides information about possible help from government as well as private resources.

Another place you should look is on the website of your state. States often have money for grants for profject such as yours. They are interested in preserving the history of the state as well as wanting to provide strong community service, and it sounds like your pool does that!

My city has a wonderful pool that was built by the Works Progress Administration during the depression years (1935-1937) We open it each year and have it open all summer.  We need to work on the historic pool house that was built along side it.  We use it but it needs some TLC.  It is structurally sound but needs cosmetic repair.  Our original pump system is still functional as well but also needs some updating.  We are looking for a grant to preserve this part of our city and state history.  If you can point me in the direction of possible funding, I would greatly appreciate it. I am trying to find a grant to help my city restore our historic pool house.

Actually alpaca farming is gaining in popularity and recognition. Three suggestions to look help you find financial assistance:

- The USDA offers some grants and loans for new/small farmers. You can find more information about that and some other farm related financial assistance in this article about grants for farms

- The Alpaca Owners Association provides lots of information about bredding and farming alpacas and may also know of resources for funding your farm.

 

Good luck!

2017-01-19 16:34:23 -0700 answered a question Are there grants for home improvements for handicapped?

There are some great places you can look for assistance. Here is an excellent article about Grants for Home Repair that covers everything from government assistance to a private foundation that is helping seniors in local communities across the nation. There are also details about a nonprofit started by congress to help upgrade and remodel homes as well.

Since you are disabled  you should also definitely check into resources offered on the government's site for the disabled and their caregivers. It is updated daily and has a ton of good information on it. They also make it pretty easy to get around but if you're interested there's a good guide to disability.gov here.

That's a tough situation Christy. I hope you are familiar with the government site for those with disabilities and their caregivers. There is a good review of disability.gov here. They definitely can point you to programs designed for the disabled, to help them make their homes more safe and accessible.There is also information in the review about how you may be able to pay your mom as a caregiver through Medicare. Take a look at the article and definitely check out the disability website.

2016-10-10 16:39:36 -0700 edited question Adult with CP looking for grant to purchase a home with mobility access?

I need a home to be more acessible for me due to cerebral palsy and being dependent on my wheelchair / walker. Grandmas house was built in 1955, I was told by my mom. The house was not completed due to grandpa having two heart attacks. He died having the second one. The home has two bedrooms and one bathroom. It doesn't have any closets built in the current bedrooms. I'm am unable to use either walker or wheelchair in the current bathroom due to lack of space. I am currently staying in her living room where my bed is taking up the couch space and my potty chair is beside my bed. They watch TV in here and the visitors come in here. I do not have any PRIVACY! It is a mess here, please help us! My mom is my current care giver and she is disabled herself. I cannot afford to pay anyone for my care but I DO PAY RENT HERE!

Along with having been born with cerebral palsy, I have been diagnosed with panic attacks, anxiety, bipolar, fibromyalgia, ibs-d, and going to have to start my c-pap machine all over again.

I am an adult with cerebral palsy looking for a grant to purchase a home with mobility access. Please help.

I had to move into my moms home due to a dropped foot condition caused by the failure of Moses Cone hospital communication mix up. I have CP but was abled to walk without assistance until I was admitted into the hospital because of my bipolar. They would not even let me out of bed to go to the bathroom. For every day I was in the bed. It takes three days for a person with my disablity to recover according to my doctor. Now I am unable to live alone because I have lost the ability to balance myself. I have to use a wheelchair, walker, and braces now. My moms bathroom does not have the space for a wheelchair or walker in it. The bedrooms are taken. This home only has 1bath/2 bedrooms. It was built in 1955 according to my mom. My grandparents built the house. I am in their living room and my bed takes the place of their couch now...my potty chair is right beside my bed.When company comes they either stand or sit on MY BED! I have NO PRIVACY AT ALL HERE! I need my own disablity acessible bedroom and bathroom ASAP! But I need some kind of grants, charities, foundactions, organizations to help me because I have no money to do this. I was born with cerebral palsy and have bipolar, IBS-D, fibromyalgia, and am a cancer survivor. I don't know what to do or where to get help. 

Please help me.

Thank you,

Christy Bullard
