Assistance is not available for luxury items; only for code requirements as determined by the housing inspector and/or rehab specialist. All properties must be free of any adverse encumbrances such as judgments and/or liens. Applicants must have occupied and owned the property for two years.

Properties deemed infeasible for repair by the housing inspector will not be eligible for our rehab programs.
