Low-to-moderate income communities can apply for grants to improve housing and rehabilitate and retrofit properties. A maximum of $550,000 in grant funds or $50,000 per household is available to improve the homes of low-to-moderate income residents of owner occupied single family housing units. Grants provide residents with safe and sanitary living conditions and help to stabilize neighborhoods and affordable housing in the community.
