ADOH administers CDBG funding for programs through units of local government in some communities that provide emergency repair to properties owned and occupied as the primary resident of low-income homeowners. These funds may be used for basic emergency repair when:
- Correction of hazardous conditions including single purpose activities such as accessibility for person(s) with disabilities or lead-based paint removal, will result in a unit that is decent, safe and sanitary;
- Correction of the hazardous conditions is necessary to avoid displacement of the owner occupants. All repairs undertaken must meet the Department’s rehabilitation standards.
Emergency repair funding cannot be used to replace adequately functioning systems that do not present a hazardous or health and safety condition.
