Single-Family Housing Rehabilitation Program

Single family site-built homes may be rehabilitated to improve livability, to increase energy efficiency, or to extend the life of the home, or they may be modified for accessibility. Mobile homes on leased property do not qualify for this program. The home is inspected by a Rehabilitation Specialist to determine if the repairs requested are within the scope of the program. Eligible home improvements must meet minimum HUD's Housing Quality Standards.

The maximum amount available for financial assistance is $35,000, available as a grant. To be eligible, the household income must not exceed 80% of the area's median family income, as established by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. 

All work is performed by licensed contractors. Contractors: if you are interested in placing bids on jobs, please contact Dawn Lee at 564.397.7811 or submit this application: Contractor Application
