Single Family Residential Rehabilitation Program (SFRRP)

2 min read

The Single Family Residential Rehabilitation Program (SFRRP) administers loans and grants that can help you fund the cost of certain home repairs. The funds can be used for several necessary improvements like fixing building code violations, removal of lead paint, and making your home more accessible (when you have trouble with mobility).

SFRRP can provide you loans for up to $75,000 which are available at low or no interest. You will usually need to pay back the loan within 20 years. However, under certain circumstances, you may be able to defer the loan which will allow you to pay back the money borrowed when your home is transferred (for example, when you sell your home).

SFRRP also overseas grants for home improvement. Grants are money you receive for a specific purpose that does not need to be paid back. SFRRP has two grant programs:

  • Handicapped Accessibility Improvement Program (HAIP): HAIP provides a grant of up to $30,000 for improvements needed to remove physical barriers within your home that can help you move more freely. Examples of modifications are constructing ramps for wheelchair access or installing grab bars in the bathroom. To take part in HAIP, you must have a mobility or other physical impairment.
  • Roof Repair: You can obtain a grant of up to $15,000 to replace your homes roof. This grant pays for exterior roofing and gutter work only.
