For a limited time, The Ramps and Rails Program will provide assistance to residents who have a physical condition that requires the installation of a ramp and/or rail for safe and easy access to their home.   

The City of Columbia Community Development Department will provide improved access to the homes of people who are elderly or disabled within the city limits of Columbia. The installations of ramps or rails will provide safer home access. The material for this service will be funded by the City of Columbia and all work will be completed by volunteers.
