Homeowner Rehabilitation Program Limited Repair 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.

Homeowner Rehabilitation Program

Please note: The City is currently not accepting program applications at this time. 

The Homeowner Rehabilitation Program provides major repairs in homes with at least three or more faulty systems:

  • roof
  • heating and/or cooling systems
  • electrical 
  • plumbing
  • structural problems

These systems, left unattended are a threat to the life, safety, or health of the occupants. The property must be located within the city limits of Raleigh and must be the owner’s principal residence five years prior to application and upon completion of the repairs. Loan amounts cannot exceed $90,000. 

To qualify, your household income must fall at or below the income limits below (as defined by HUD federal guidelines) or the homeowner must be 62 years or older.
