2019 Novel Coronavirus - (COVID-19) - Updates and Information

A cheerful young adult man with cerebral palsy drives down a wheelchair ramp to go outdoors on a bright sunny day.

The critical access grant program was developed to provide those who meet program guidelines with a high quality, movable wheelchair ramp, which can be taken down and re-installed at a variety of sites.

A person who needs a ramp and doesn’t have one can easily become trapped and isolated in their own home. When ordinary porch steps become an insurmountable barrier, getting to critical medical appointments, visiting friends and family, or even just going for a stroll can be an overwhelming struggle.

The Critical Access Ramp Program was developed to provide those who meet program guidelines with a solid and free standing ramp. The ramp designs meet the standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act as well as other other local standards. The Critical Access Ramp Program has been used throughout the state of Maine to provide quality ramps to individuals.

Alpha One works alongside quality professional builders and uses pressure treated lumber that will last many years.

Note: Alpha One is unable to provide ramps with our Critical Access program to residents of Bangor, Brunswick, Biddeford, and Lewiston-Auburn. These cities have their own Block Grants. Please contact your city for more information.
