Gov announces disability grants

He's announced $2 million in grants to help people with disabilities stay in their homes.

The money supports the state's home modification program. It adds ramps, chair lifts and other features to the homes of low-income seniors and residents with disabilities.

Those who qualify can receive up to $25,000.

Since 2006, the program has awarded more than $5 million in grants, so people with disabilities can stay in their homes and live independently.
