Minor Home Repair Program

The City of Federal Heights Minor Home Repair Program is available to qualifying homeowners to help pay for minor home repairs.  The program provides grants, technical assistance, and contract management to eligible homeowners.  The Minor Home Repair Program is funded through the City's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and administered by Adams County's Community and Neighborhood Resources Department.

How the program works:
An initial telephone interview is conducted to determine preliminary eligibility.  An application is mailed to homeowners who meet preliminary eligibility requirements and income guidelines.  If the applicant is approved, the Adams County Housing Coordinator will conduct an on-site visit to determine which essential repairs are needed.  Then a description of work and cost estimate are prepared, reviewed by the homeowner and released for bid to local contractors.

The contractor with the lowest qualified bid will usually be selected to complete the work on the home.  All work will be inspected for completeness and compliance with local building codes. An average grant amount is approximately $3,000 - $7,000 per home.

Qualification and Eligibility
In order to qualify for this program you must live in Federal Heights, own and live in your home, be current with your mortgage payments and meet established income guidelines.

  • The home must be a single family home
  • Mobile homes must have HUD manufacturer certification labels (manufactured after July 1, 1976)
  • The applicant must own the home (name must be on the deed of trust) and the home must be the applicant's primary residence.
