Wheelchair Ramp Program
The City of Jacksonville Disabled Services Office has partnered with the Home Builders Institute (HBI) and the Jacksonville Job Corps to construct free wheelchair ramps for Duval County’s disability community. The ramps, which are funded through parking citation revenue from citizens improperly parking in disabled spaces, are helping local disabled persons obtain better accessibility to their homes.
The Wheelchair Ramp Program is a service offered to low income families with a need for access to their residence and provides a wheelchair ramp at no cost to the customer. Please download the application
and make an appointment with Delores Williams, Social Service Aide in the Office of Disabled Services at (904) 630-4940.

The Wheelchair Ramp Program is funded through fees collected from tickets issued by the Disabled Parking Enforcement Program (DPEP). The office of Disabled Services works in conjunction with Youth Build who volunteers man hours to complete the wheelchair ramp project.
