EMERGENCY HOME REPAIR

The Emergency Home Repair program will provide home repair assistance in the form of a grant to qualified single-family owner-occupied housing units. This program is not intended to be a "mini-rehab" program, but rather to correct a problem that poses an immediate threat to the health and safety of the household occupants. For example, replacing a furnace where there is no heat.

The following are examples if items that are eligible for repair and/or replacement:

  • Structural system repairs and replacements mechanical system repairs and replacements plumbing system tap-ins Accessibility improvements

The following are examples of items that are not eligible for repair and/or replacement:

  • Painting, paneling or carpeting air conditioning garage repairs or improvements landscape plantings.
  • Roof replacement is usually not considered an emergency but will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.


In order to receive assistance under this activity, an applicant household must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Be an owner occupant of a single-family dwelling unit in the City of Sandusky.
  • Applicant has not received assistance through any city housing rehab program within the last five years.
  • Applicant may not have assets of more than $10,000 nor reside in a dwelling unit which has existing defects creating a threat to the health and safety of household occupants.
  • Maintain the housing unit as a principal residence.
  • Total household income must be below the 2005 Household Income Guidelines (see chart below).
  • Must meet HUD criteria of decent, safe and sanitary at time of occupancy.
