Granite State Independent Living (GSIL) has received a $36,750 grant from the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation to support GSIL's Access Modification Program (AMP). The funds will be used to provide a minimum of 15 individuals with spinal cord injuries with the necessary access modifications for their homes.
Last year, AMP assisted 44 consumers in overcoming access barriers by providing coordination and funding for the installation of ramps, home modifications, or the purchase of equipment. The AMP program and the critical modifications it makes possible open the door to a greater degree of independence and allows individuals with disabilities to better access their homes and communities.
For some, these barriers are so confining- they literally become prisoners within their own homes. These barriers interfere with or prevent the individual's ability to earn a living and go about the activities of daily life. Additional information about the Access Modification Program can be obtained by calling Granite State Independent Living at 603-228-9680 or by visiting www.gsil.org.
