Erie Whole-Home Repair Program

Erie Whole-Homes Repair Program in Erie County

 

 

Overview:

Erie County is committed to assisting low- and moderate-income individuals by providing essential support through the Pennsylvania COVID-19 ARPA Whole Home Repair Grant. This program focuses on enhancing the living conditions of single-family, owner-occupied residences by offering funding for exterior property rehabilitation.

Grant funds will be allocated to income-qualified home owners, ensuring that those who need assistance the most receive the necessary support.

Eligible applicants may seek funding to address exterior housing repair needs such as roofs, siding, porches, windows, foundations, and any needed ADA accessibility concerns. The Erie County Department of Planning and Community Development is administering the program. The City of Erie Redevelopment Authority and the Corry Redevelopment  Authority are under contract to provide the home renovations and inspections.

While prioritizing health and safety, the program does not support the replacement or modification of exterior components solely for beautification purposes. The funding is dedicated  to addressing structural issues and essential improvements.

 

Program Qualifications:

Support will be extended to households with an annual income, encompassing all occupants of the residence, that falls at or below 80% of the Area Median Income, as periodically defined by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
