Minor Home Repair Program

 2019 Open Enrollment 

 August 19, 2019 @ 8 a.m. - August 30, 2019 @ 5 p.m.

The 2019 Owner-Occupied Minor Home Repair Program will utilize the lottery system. Once the Open Enrollment period is announced, applications will be accepted between those dates only. Once Open Enrollment is closed, staff will randomly draw names for applications to be reviewed for eligibility. If your name is drawn you will be required to submit pertinent documents necessary to verify your household income. You must respond within the given time periods or your application will be denied. This process will continue until all funds have been expended.

The owner-occupied Minor Home Repair Program will assist homeowners with home repairs to correct health and safety hazards, as well as address any building or code deficiencies of owner occupied properties.

A fee of $35, to cover the cost associated with satisfying the lien placed on your property as a result of  participating in this program, will be required from all applicants at the time of contract signing.
