Home Replacement Program

The City can provide income-eligible homeowners with home repair financing under its Home Improvement Program. If it is deemed that it is not cost-effective to improve the existing the home, your home may be eligible for the Home Replacement Program.

The process for qualifying for this program follows the same process as the Housing Rehabilitation Program. Through that process, the City's Housing Services would determine if your home would qualify for replacement.

These programs are funded through:  federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), federal HOME Investment Partnership (HOME), and State Housing Initiatives Partnership (SHIP) Program.

Attic Insulation Upgrades:  Duke Energy offers a rebate up to $800 to homeowners who need insulation upgrades. Insulation keeps your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Without proper insulation, the hot or cold air outside can seep into your living space, causing your air conditioner or heater to work harder than it should to keep your home comfortable. This can lead to higher-than-expected energy bills.
