Housing Rehabilitation

Neighborhoods flourish when the housing is good, and good neighborhoods mean healthy communities. That’s why we rehabilitate homes for limited-income families on behalf of our partnering communities.

Housing rehabilitation since 1989:
1,000+ houses
9 counties
$27 million invested

Eligible homeowners can enjoy a rehabilitated home at no cost while we manage it from start to finish, including obtaining the contractor and seeing the project through to completion.

Eligible Repairs: Structural, roofing, plumbing, electrical, heating/furnace, window replacement, radon and lead-based paint mitigation, and energy-related improvements. Also included are modifications for mobility-impaired residents. There is no cost to homeowners who maintain home residency over a five-year period from the date of signing.


• Own the home or have life rights to live in it;
• Meet income qualifications based on household size;
• Be current on local taxes and municipal utility bills;
• Provide proof of homeowner’s insurance;
• Live in the home an additional five years.
Additional requirements may apply.
