Alachua County is seeking applicants to participate in the Community Development Block Grant Housing Rehabilitation program to assist homeowners with repairs.

Items eligible for repair include roofs, heating systems, plumbing, electrical and other code related housing systems.

Currently, the County has funds available to assist a limited number of homeowners. In addition to being a low or very-low income household, applicants must meet certain eligibility criteria including owning the home in need of repair and residing in it as one’s primary residence.
