Urgent Repair Program

The Agency makes Urgent Repair Program funds available to qualified organizations during each funding cycle to finance emergency home repairs and modifications for low-income homeowners with special needs. Nonprofit organizations, local governments and regional councils of governments can use the funds to provide deferred, forgiven loans of up to $12,000 to qualified homeowners for emergency repairs.

Your organization may be eligible to receive up to $264,000 for projects serving two or more counties and $132,000 for projects serving a single county.

If you are a homeowner, please contact Gloria Moore at 919-981-2623 or [email protected] to be connected to a partner that can assist with housing repairs.
