Owner-Occupied Home Improvement Programs

There are many programs available to assist eligible home owners with repairs and rehabilitation. Typically any repair that will correct hazardous, unsanitary and blighting conditions is eligible. For example, work can include a new roof, replacing a heating and air conditioning system, upgrading an electrical and plumbing system, energy efficiency and corrections to health, safety and other code violations. In addition, if a household member has special needs because of mobility, hearing and/or vision impairment, modifications may be made to the house and property to meet their special needs.

For more information about home owner rehabilitation programs administered through the State of Maryland's Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD).
