Whole-Homes Repair Program in Erie County
Due to the overwhelming response to the Whole-Home Repair Program which exceeds available funding, we have created a waiting list for future funding opportunities. If you have made inquiry with either Erie County, the Redevelopment Authority of the City of Erie or the Corry Redevelopment Authority, your request will be processed as soon as possible.
“After launching the program, we received hundreds of applications. Unfortunately, Erie County was only allocated $2.6 million for this program. It is our promise to stretch that investment as far as possible and rehabilitate as many homes as we can throughout the County”, said Erie County Executive Brenton Davis.
You may also qualify for other programs available through the City of Erie Redevelopment Authority. Check their website for program eligibility at https://www.redeveloperie.org/apply-to-program.
ERIE, PA – Erie County Executive Brenton Davis has launched the COVID-19 ARPA Whole-Home Repairs Program in Erie County with grant funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.
This program addresses housing habitability by providing grant funding to counties to support exterior home repairs for low to moderate income homeowners.
Homeowners in Erie County’s Boroughs and the City of Corry whose household income does not exceed 80% of the area median income are eligible to apply.
“The Whole-Home Repairs Program will deliver over $2.5 million into our county specifically targeted towards revitalizing our neighborhoods,” said County Executive Brenton Davis. “This program will help advance our rural revival initiative by targeting these funds into our rural townships and boroughs that haven’t seen this level of investment in decades,” Davis added.
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.
Due to limitations on currently available funding applications are being accepted from a limited number of areas.
