The home improvement/repair grant program has returned! Property owners can use these grants for exterior home improvements such as painting, siding, gutters, roofs, doors, windows, steps, railings, sidewalks and driveways.To be eligible, you must own your home and your household income must fall within certain ranges identified in the guidelines.
If you qualify, this program can provide up to $2,000 for those repairs that do not need to be concerned with historic compliance (for example, sidewalks) and up to $5,000 if the proposed work meets historic guidelines as determined by the age of your home and the extent to which the proposed improvement matches original features of the structure.
Program guidelines and the application can be downloaded by clicking here.
Grant funds are awarded on a first-come-first-served basis.
