Limited Repair Program Homeowner Rehabilitation Program

The Community Development Division has two programs designed to help homeowners address needed home repairs. These programs cover problems such as leaking roofs, faulty plumbing, electrical or heating systems, broken windows, flooring, and lead paint removal.

Limited Repair Program

The Limited Repair Program is for repairs to at least one or two faulty systems such as roof, heating and cooling systems, electrical, plumbing or structural problems. These systems, left untended are a threat to the life, safety or health of the occupants. The property must be located in the city limits of Raleigh and must be the owner’s principal residence upon completion of the repairs.

Loan amounts cannot exceed $15,000. Loans are discounted 20% every year and forgiven after five (5) years of owner occupancy.

To qualify, your household income must fall at or below the income limits below (as defined by HUD federal guidelines).
