Owner Occupied Housing Rehabilitation and Small Home Repair funds are available to residents in the cities of Hubbard, Niles and Girard
The City of Hubbard, along with the City of Niles and the City of Girard have been awarded monies for Owner Occupied Housing Rehabilitation and Home Repair Programs through the State of Ohio’s Community Housing Improvement and Preservation Program (CHIP).
The program’s purpose is to help homeowners rehabilitate and repair their homes.
These funds assist homeowners in making their homes safe, sound and secure.
Neighborhood Development Services will administer the program for each community. The grant is expected to fund the rehabilitation of several homes with both large and small repairs. To be eligible for the program residents must own and occupy their home, and meet income eligibility requirements set by the state. Homeowners accepted into the program are eligible to receive a new furnace, electrical upgrades, roof repairs and more.
Applications are currently being accepted at Neighborhood Development Services. Homeowners interested in applying for the program should contact Debbi in the Hubbard Mayor’s Office at 330-534-3090 or stop by for an application.
