Seal Beach Bathroom Accessibility
CivicStone, Inc. reviews all the applications, coordinates rehabilitation, manages accounting and all reporting to the City of Seal Beach, the County of Orange and HUD for the Seal Beach Bathroom Accessibility Program. This program improves shower and toilet accessibility to residents of Leisure World through a grant from HUD. The funds are used to cut-down the high tub wall and when resurfacing the unit and providing new glass makes the tub an ADA compliant shower.
