Live longer in the home you love! Montgomery County has a property tax credit program to help pay for making your home more universally accessible.

The Design for Life Property Tax Credit Program is for all ages and stages of life. Whether you are a first-time homebuyer, young family, active adult or person living with a temporary or permanent impairment, these additional design elements will enhance your home — and at the same time, meet your needs and your visitors’ needs. These design elements include a no-step entrance, 32” doorways, maneuverable kitchens, accessible bathrooms, properly-installed grab bars, and elevators.

Learn more about this program by visiting the Design for Life website.
