EDA offers two home repair programs: Home Repair Loan Program (HRLP) and Senior Home Repair Grant (SHRG). Applications are currently being accepted for both programs on a first come first served basis as funds are available.

Home Repair Loan Program (HRLP)
HRLP provides up to $10,000 for home repair services in the form of a deferred loan. This program is designed to address a broader scope of repairs. Work approved under HRLP is determined by EDA based on scope of eligible repairs per program guidelines. Interested applicants must meet eligibility guidelines, which include but are not limited to the following:

  • Must Own and Occupy Your Own Home
  • Meet Low-Income Guidelines
  • Must be Current on Your Mortgage and Property Taxes
  • Homes built prior to 1978 are not eligible

Because of the investment from this program, the homeowner signs loan documents including a Promissory Note, Deed of Trust and Covenant Agreement. The terms of the loan are in force for ten years after which time the loan is forgiven. There is no interest charged on the loan and no monthly payments are required. Click Here for an HRLP application.

Senior Home Repair Grant (SHRG):
EDA may be able to cover the cost of repairs up to a total of $6,000 with no loan or payback requirement if you meet the program guidelines, which include but are not limited to the following:

  • Must Own and Occupy Your Own Home
  • Meet Very Low-Income Guidelines
  • Must be 62 years old or older and/or disabled
  • Homes built prior to 1978 are not eligible

Who is Eligible?

Home repair services are available to homeowners who are low-income based on the income limits table.

Additional eligibility requirements apply based on the program you select. EDA staff will determine eligibility based on a review of application documents.

Applicants are limited to one application per fiscal year (July 1st - June 30th). Applicants who have previously received Senior Home Repair Grant (SHRG) or Home Repair Loan Program (HRLP) assistance are not eligible to receive any further assistance under these programs.
