By building or installing various home modifications, The CIL helps residents live more safely and independently in their homes.  Our Residential Access Specialist will do a home assessment to figure out the best modifications to meet your specific needs.


Examples of modifications include:

  • Exterior lifts or ramps
  • Grab bars
  • Standing poles
  • Flexible shower hoses
  • Flashing doorbells
  • Tactile stair tread
  • Handrails and much more

This program is free for low to moderate income Berkeley residents who have a verified disability, whether homeowner or renter.

If you do not fit the requirements for this program, CIL has a fee-for-service consultation for homeowners who live in the East Bay to determine the best ways to make their homes more accessible.
