What is the Genesee County Home Improvement / Urgent Repair Program?
The Genesee County Home Improvement Program was created to provide property owners with a Deferred Payment Loan (DPL) to make needed improvements to their homes. These improvements are based on HUD Section 8 Minimum Housing Quality Standards (HQS).
Minimum standards assure that federal dollars are not spent on inadequate housing (i.e., not decent, safe and sanitary).
- Provide protection to tenants.
- Prevent assistance being provided for substandard units.
- Upgrade housing stock available to low income families.
Also available is the Genesee County Urgent Repair Program, which provides needed repairs that are deemed urgent by a Genesee County Rehabilation Specialist. Click here
