The Home Modification and Maintenance Information Clearinghouse Project was funded by the Department of Ageing, Disability and Home Care (DADHC) of NSW. The project arose out of governmental recognition that significant issues existed regarding current home modification and adaptable housing practice. The Home Modification and Maintenance (HMM) scheme delivers an important service to aged and/or disabled persons and their carers to enable them to remain at home. This paper reports on the service providers' needs analysis, the mission, and the research undertaken. It includes useful principles to guide evidence based practice development in the area of housing retrofit for older persons and people with disabilities.
