Many very low-income, small town families
and individuals have essential repairs they need to make to their homes, but are unable
to save for expensive projects. Some need accessibility modifications, others
major safety repairs, and some could benefit from energy efficienct upgrades to lower their
monthly utility bill. The United States Department of Agriculture
lends a hand to these families through our Home Repair Program by helping these homeowners
make essential improvements to their homes. Homeowners who are income eligible could get
funds to make the repair right now, and repay USDA over time with only 1% interest.
Folks age 62 and older could qualify for that same 1% loan and receive a grant of up to
$7,500 to fix unsafe conditions or make their home a healthy and accessible place to live.
Now, homeowners who thought they had no way to improve their house can finally afford
to make their home safe, accessible, and more affordable to heat and cool.
USDA supports all facets of The American Dream, and helps small town families and seniors
make their house home.
