Municipal Americans with Disabilities Act Grant Program
Updated: Feb 18, 2022
The City of Malden was recently awarded a total of $45,000 from the Massachusetts Office on Disability to complete upgrades to the Malden Senior Community Center.
The grant will be funding upgrades to the accessible elements in the bathrooms at the Senior Center; including handicap openers on doors and self-closing hinges on the stall doors. It will also replace the handrails on the ramp to the stage in the auditorium and upgrades to other minor features. The building houses programs for our senior residents, as well as for the Malden Teen Enrichment Center, which runs after-school programs daily.
Thanks to the hard work of the City's Disability Commission, Public Facilities Director Eric Rubin and the Mayor's office, we can ensure everyone has equal access to the programs and services at the Center.
Congratulations again to the Malden Senior Center and thank you for all the wonderful programs and services you provide for our seniors, teens and everyone in between. Hope to see you all soon when the Center reopens again!
