Formerly known as the Roof and Porch Repair Program, the Home Repair Program (HRP) provides grants to income-eligible homeowners for improvements to their roof or porch. The program is open to residents who own and occupy a 1-to-4-unit residential property. To qualify, households must meet HUD income guidelines. The amount of financial assistance is based on household need and available funding. A site inspection will determine the scope of work required and the repair cost.

Income guidelines

Households earning up to 80 percent of area median income (AMI) may be eligible to participate in the program. See chart below for income qualifications.
