DALLAS – The Housing Community Services Home Repair Program has been steadily repairing homes around Dallas in order to keep residents safe and financially afloat. The City of Dallas Housing/Community Services Department’s Home Repair Program strives to preserve and restore the existing stock for low income homeowners in the City of Dallas. The MSRP deals with issues related to air conditioning, heating, plumbing, ventilation, roof work, electrical needs or other key systems in a house, and will cover up to $17,500 in repairs under a deferred loan to the homeowner. Those who may be eligible for a program must own their home for at least two years or be in the process of buying a home. They also must pay their property taxes, have current insurance, and have a valid deed. You may apply once a year until you receive assistance, however, the assistance is only granted once in a lifetime. For more information, call (214) 670-5988.
