OLR Report 2015-R-0097 describes state and federal government home repair and rehabilitation programs available to homeowners.
The state and federal governments administer several home repair and rehabilitation programs available to homeowners. Eligibility criteria (e.g., income limits, eligible geographic locations) vary among programs. For example, (1) the federal Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers two home renovation programs for veterans with certain service-connected disabilities and (2) the state Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) offers a program open only to owners of historic homes. The state and federal governments also provide funding to municipalities, businesses, and nonprofit organizations offering home repair and rehabilitation services to homeowners.
