Snow Belt receives state and federal grant funding to assist community members with critical home repairs.
Landlords can also qualify for the Property Rehabilitation Program when they agree to rent their apartments to income eligible tenants for a "period of affordability" (timeframe determined by the funding source).
The purpose of the Rental Rehabilitation service is to improve the health, safety, and energy efficiency of your home. Grant funding is not intended to be used for home improvements that only make your house look nicer. All homes assisted with grant funds must use a minimum of $1,000 in grant assistance.
The following is a priority list of repairs eligible for assistance. Any items that would cause your home to violate HUD Housing Quality Standards or local and state building codes must be addressed first.
Roof Heating equipment Chimneys Septic issues Electrical upgrade
Foundation Insulation Plumbing fixtures Wiring Waterlines & service
Sewer lines Broken glass Structural Stairs and railings
