Home Repair Grants
The City of Houston is undertaking a special effort to revitalize some neighborhoods which have experienced decades of neglect. If we succeed in building new housing on abandoned lots and repairing existing houses in these neighborhoods, we can then expand these services to other neighborhoods.
This program does not replace some existing programs which are available to other residents outside these areas. We will, however, make extraordinary efforts to put on a "fast track" those home repairs in places where we have encouraged builders to engage with Houston Hope.
The flyers attached describe how to get information about home repair grants and the exact geographic boundaries.
