DURA’s Housing Rehabilitation programs match low-income and moderate-income residents with grants and low-interest loans for emergency repairs like hot water heater replacement, or for more thorough rehabilitation of a single family home, like installing a new roof and replacing sewer lines – repairs that ensure that the home is safe and comfortable.
The programs deliver high-quality improvements and also offer assistance in working with reliable contractors. DURA also makes grants to renters and homeowners with disabilities for access modifications. As part of DURA’s commitment to the homeowner, DURA oversees the work being performed by the contractor to make sure repairs are completed quickly, at a competitive price, with the highest quality work, and in the best interest of the homeowner.
