Rehabilitation Department

Housing Rehabilitation exists to provide private homeowners and landlords the resources to make improvements to their homes through a variety of community-based programs. Our goal is to help homeowners who meet income limits, and landlords renting to low-income tenants keep their properties safe, secure and well-maintained. Because we know that good homes make for better neighborhoods. Here are a few of the many programs we have available to help you improve your property today!
