The only program offered to both renters and homeowners, this program grants up to $10,000 to assist Denver residents with qualifying disabilities to make accessibility modifications in and around their home.

RHAMP is a grant program funded by the City of Denver, Office of Economic Development’s Division of Business and Housing Services and operated by DURA. RHAMP grants provide the funding and technical expertise to Denver residents with eligible disabilities as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Eligible Improvements

Participants may use grant funds to make necessary modifications to their homes, including but not limited to:

  • Handicap ramps
  • Lifts for chairs and stairs
  • Grab bars
  • ADA bathroom fixtures
  • Roll-in showers

As a grant, the funds do not need to be repaid; however, if the grant recipient relocates, all property improvements must stay with the property.

As part of DURA’s commitment to the client, DURA oversees the work being performed by the contractor to make sure modifications are completed quickly, at a competitive price, with the highest quality work, and in the best interest of the client.

Renters must have a 12-month lease with their landlord in order to participate in RHAMP.  These grants will only be offered with a waiver from the property owner agreeing not to increase the grantee’s rent solely based on the improvements to the units (pertains to rental grantees only).  All modifications to the landlord/homeowners property shall remain with the property when the grantee moves out.

*Contact the DURA office (303.534.3872 or info@renewdenver.org) for the applicable income limits if your household size exceeds 8 people.
