Environmental Modifications and Vehicle Modifications are internal and external physical adaptations to the participant’s residence and primary vehicle, which ensure the participant’s health, safety and welfare and which increase the participant’s independence and integration into the community. Environmental Modifications may be made to a residence owned by the participant or to rental units with permission received from the landlord.
Some examples of E-Mods are ramps, lifts, widened doorways, handrails, water faucet controls and roll-in showers. Some examples of V-Mods are hand controls, spinner knobs, wheelchair lock downs and wheelchair lifts.
