Housing Repair Program

The City has limited funds available to assist with minor home repairs to qualified homeowners in the approved targeted areas. CDBG funds will be used primarily to correct health and safety hazards and improve accessibility of low to moderate income, single family owner-occupied Gary homeowners. A GRANT up to a maximum of $10,000 and a maximum LOAN amount of $5,000 may be awarded to qualified homeowners for the purpose of making needed repairs to their home to enable them to remain living in their home for as long as possible. The amount of the total cost of repairs cannot exceed $15,000. Eligible repairs (but not an all-inclusive list) include: Roof, plumbing, HVAC, electrical, and handicap accessibility.
