 The purpose of the hearings will be to give all interested parties an opportunity to be heard regarding the proposed changes in the Housing Rehabilitation program guidelines.  The following information provides a summary of the proposed changes:

  • An emergency rehabilitation component will be added to the program to allow for work on one or two major problems to stabilize a house and prevent it from experiencing accelerated deterioration.  The spending limit on emergency rehabilitation will be capped at $7,000 per house.  The limit can be increased by up to $4,000 in a dollar for dollar match to a cash or in-kind contribution by the homeowner.
  • The cap on full house rehabilitation will be lowered from $70,000 to $50,000.
  • Reconstruction will continue to be an option.  It will be capped at $65,000.
  • The waiting list will be split into two waiting lists, one for full house rehabilitation and the other for emergency rehabilitation.  Persons currently on the waiting list will be able to choose which waiting list they want to be on and will retain their place in line.
