Your Donation Can Make a Difference
The Wake County Board of Commissioners has created a way for the public to donate to support certain initiatives. This year, the Board has chosen homeownership rehabilitation programs. This is an existing County service with funds managed by our Housing department. Beneficiaries of the program are the elderly or disabled or those with low household incomes who need emergency repairs.
About the Homeownership Rehabilitation Programs
The Wake County Housing and Community Revitalization Division offers two types of rehabilitation programs in order to meet the needs of citizens:
- Elderly and Disabled Homeowner Grants:
If you are elderly or disabled and need modest repairs to your home to assist with mobility or retrofits needed after hospital stays, this grant program may be able to help. The program serves homeowners earning at or below 50% area median income (AMI). The current AMI can be found here.
- Emergency Grant Program:
If you are a homeowner earning at or below 40% area median income , and you are in danger because of a problem with your home that needs to be fixed immediately, an emergency grant may be able to assist you. Eligible repairs include: heating, well/septic, roof and electrical hazards. For information and eligibility requirements on these programs, please contact Arlene Vinson or 919-856-5906.
