Snow Belt receives state and federal grant funding to assist community members with critical home repairs.  

Landlords can also qualify for the Property Rehabilitation Program when they agree to rent their apartments to income eligible tenants for a "period of affordability" (timeframe determined by the funding source). 

The purpose of the Rental Rehabilitation service is to improve the health, safety, and energy efficiency of your home. Grant funding is not intended to be used for home improvements that only make your house look nicer. All homes assisted with grant funds must use a minimum of $1,000 in grant assistance.
