Home Repair Loans and Grants

The U. S. Department of Agriculture has a Home Repair Loans and Grant program available to those who qualify. The 504 Loan Program is designed to provide assistance to very low income owners of modest single-family homes in rural areas, for home improvements to remove health and safety hazards or to make a home accessible for household members with disabilities. The 504 Grant Program is available to very low-income homeowners 62 and older who are unable to repay a loan. There is also a Section 502 Direct Loans Program designed to provide eligible persons the opportunity to buy or build a decent, safe and sanitary dwelling. Brochures are available at City Hall or call 724-853-5555, ext. 4 for more information.
