Housing Rehabilitation

This is a federally funded loan/grant program from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that is administered through the City of Mesa Housing Services Division.  The funds are used on various projects for the development and revitalization of targeted areas of  the city.  This program is funded through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and H.O.M.E. programs.

The purpose of the Housing Rehabilitation Program is to improve the livability of a home, to extend its life for a minimum of 10 years, and to meet the current minimum building codes, whenever possible.   Major emphasis is given to housing problems affecting safety and health (such as gas leaks, outdated and hazardous electrical wiring, and plumbing).

The actual amount of repairs needed will be determined from an inspection and evaluation of the home.  This type of assistance can vary depending on the needs in a home; however, not all homes can be repaired.  If the home has too many major problems, it may not qualify for our regular housing rehab/repair program, but we may be able to help with emergency repair(s) for safety reasons.

We provide help in the following areas:

  • Electrical
  • Bath Facilities
  • Handicap Accessibility
  • Windows/Doors
  • Roofing
  • Heating/Cooling
  • Walls
  • Kitchen
  • Plumbing
  • Hot Water
