Emergency Repair Program

This grant program provides essential housing repairs for very-low-income seniors.  Work typically involves repairs to roofs, electrical systems, plumbing systems, septic systems, heat and air systems, and structural repairs.  The maximum grant is $10,000 with a 50% match, or $5000.  This match may be provided by another person or source like a non-profit organization.  Eligible applicants must be at least 60 years old, be at or below 60% of the area’s median income, and have ownership interest in the property. If the housing is a mobile home, the homeowner must own the unit, but does not have to own the land on which it rests.
