CDBG Programs

Exterior Enhancement Program

The Exterior Enhancement Program aims to eliminate housing deficiencies by providing financial and technical assistance to homeowners in a designated target area. Grant amounts may not exceed $5,000 and can only be applied to homeowner occupied residences. If the cost of repair exceeds the grant amount, the homeowner can contribute to the balance of expenses incurred over $5,000 to complete the necessary repair.

Program availability may be limited to funding, grant cycle or type of repair needed.
