Grants for Home Improvement

Programs for renovation and repair of RURAL HOMES are a great benefit to thousands of homeowners across America; Canada and in Europe.

The Home Repair Loan and Grant Program is directly funded by the US Government.

Not only does this program help families with very low income to renovate their homes but it also enables funds to convert a home for disable access, i.e. a front door ramp, widening doors etc.

If you have a leaky roof, need to replace a wood stove with central heating change old systems for running water, a bathroom and a waste disposal system, this program may be able to help you.

This "low-income housing repair loans and grants" is part of the Rural Housing Service.

Homeowners who are 62years old and over are eligible for this type of Government Grant for Home Improvement, they maximum amount available is $7,500 on the understanding that the improved property is not sold for at least 3 years.

In this particular case you must own and occupy the home you want to improve, and of course you must be a citizen of the United States or hold permanent residency.

To qualify for this type of grant you first must show that you are unable to qualify for the loan, i.e. you would be unable to pay it back, this is one of the main differences between the grant and the loan.

The maximum very low-income housing repair grant available to any ONE person - at the time we reviewed was - $7,500.

You must reside in an eligible rural area with a population of less than 10,000. (although some rural areas with populations between 10,000 and 25,000 may also be eligible.)

This is a combination of the loan and grant programs, with a maximum loan amount of up to $27,500.

As part of qualifying for this program you will have to be able to show that you can repay at least part of the cost.

It usually only takes between 30 - 60 days to hear if you have been approved or not, for either type of fund. To speed up the process from the start it is best to have your paperwork ready and to hand.

You will need to supply proof of age and evidence of ownership of the property requiring repairs and improvement.

You must show proof of income and details of any debts that may need to be taken into consideration, especially important in regards to the monthly repayment amounts and length of repayment terms of the loan.
