Members of the Virginia Beach Housing & Neighborhood Preservation are seeking to help eligible, local homeowners replace their defective HVAC equipment through a new program.
The Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Program aims to help make home rehabilitation more affordable for low to moderate-income homeowners in the city.
Through the program, loans and grants are provided to eligible applicants for emergency home repairs. City officials clarified that the program is NOT intended for making routine maintenance repairs to systems or equipment.
Eligible emergency activities through the program include replacing defective air conditioning equipment; correcting electrical, gas and plumbing hazards; correcting defective roof/ceiling assemblies in life-threatening situations; and making accessibility and usability modifications.
Virginia Beach Housing & Neighborhood Preservation provides and supports a variety of resources to help people obtain, keep and maintain housing. The department does not own or operate any housing itself.
Your home is one of your most valuable investments. Keeping your home in good repair protects your investment and helps everyone enjoy a better quality of life. Sometimes it is difficult to afford necessary repairs. Help is available through Virginia Beach Housing & Neighborhood Preservation’s Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Program and Manufactured (Mobile) Home Rehabilitation Program.
The programs help make home rehablitation and repairs more affordable for low- to moderate-income homeowners residing in Virginia Beach. Depending on the program and type of rehabilitation/repairs, assistance is provided to eligible applicants in the form of a grant and/or affordable loan.
