Owner-Occupied Home Repairs

CHRIC provides income-eligible homeowners financial assistance to complete repairs that will make  their homes safer, healthier and more affordable.

Most of our programs are targeted to specific communities or specific types of repairs. Each may have its own guidelines for eligibility.

TO APPLY TO BE PART OF PROGRAMS THAT ARE TRYING TO SECURE FUNDING:

CHRIC is currently working with the Village of Celoron, the Village of Lakewood, and the Town of Poland to help develop applications for Community Development Block Grant funding through the NYS Office of Community Renewal that would be available only to the residents of these Towns/Villages in need of help with home repairs. These funds will be available to owner-occupied properties only.
 If you would like to be part of one of these applications, which will help to make it more likely that funds will be awarded, please click below to fill out a pre-application. You can mail it to CHRIC or drop it off at the Town or Village Hall. If any of these applications are successful, funds will be available during 2018-2019:









CHRIC is also working with the Town of Ellington to try to secure Community Development Block Grant funds that would help eligible homeowners in the Town of Ellington who are currently living in mobile homes that are beyond repair and in need of replacement. This program removes the existing trailer from your property and replaces it with a new, appropriately sized home.
