[ARCHIVED] Urgent Repair 2020 Housing Rehabilitation Client Packet

Urgent Repair Program

Please read this memo and the assistance policy in its entirety. The original plan was to send these out in January but unfortunately, most of our programs are behind due to COVID delays. Therefore, grant extensions are necessary from the state funders.

Several of you have applied for programs in the past and/or called to be placed on program waiting lists. Limited annual funds make this application process continual for many of you whom reapply each year. Please remember we can only help 10-14 houses in each program so I understand the frustration you may feel with reapplying and staying on the waiting list. Previously unserved applicants must complete the paperwork with every new program according to the project guidelines.

The City has applied for another program entitled Essentials Single Family Rehabilitation (ESFR) and I hope to hear from the application later this year. Applications are often reviewed for both programs. 

With every project, applicants are scored and rank based on the eligibility information described in the Assistance Policy and ranked against all applicants during that application phase. A copy of the Assistance Policy is included for you to review and keep for your files. Make sure to review the information on page 1 detailing eligibility, with further explanations of a special need on pages 2-3.

The application may be confusing so please fill in what you can and call me with any questions.
