Kansas City offers repair assistance to lower income homeowners

May 19, 2017 - 6:34 am

Kansas City housing officials are accepting applications for the city's Home Repair program.

Funds are income-based and are awarded first-come, first-served, said Stuart Bullington, program administrator.

"This year we changed the income guidelines from 50% to 80% of median income," Bullington said.  

Homeowners are eligible to get plumbing, electrical, roof and other repairs done through the city Neighborhoods and Housing Services Department. The city will continue taking applications until the money runs out, Bullington said. 

The City Home Repair Program is offered to single-family KCMO homeowners who have not received home repair services from the city within the last five years. The program does not service rental property, mobile homes or duplexes.
