The City of New Rochelle is pleased to announce the Residential Rehabilitation Program, designed to aid New Rochelle homeowners with qualifying incomes by providing funds for certain repairs to their single-family homes.
The Residential Rehabilitation Program is open to all income-eligible City residents who live in and own their homes. The program is funded through a grant of HOME Investment Partnerships Program funds from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
The Program focuses on addressing critical home repair needs in order to preserve and extend the livability of homes within the City owned by low and moderate income families.
"Through this program, qualified homeowners can receive significant assistance, while our whole community benefits from an improved housing stock and stabilized property values,” said Mayor Noam Bramson.
The Residential Rehabilitation Program will focus only on the repair of major systems in the home that are beyond their useful life or have significant repair needs. Eligible repairs are limited to heating, plumbing, windows and exterior doors, roofing and electrical. The program is not intended to be a comprehensive repair program and the homes must meet all required codes.
A brochure containing the initial application is available on line at www.newrochelleny.com and at the Department of Development, City Hall, 515 North Avenue, New Rochelle, NY 10801. For more information contact: Christine Magrin at (914) 654- 2184.
