Looking for home repair assistance or aid in the face of discrimination? The City of Houston Housing Department is host to two programs that can help. We encourage you to explore the available resources in more detail on the pages below.
Home Repair Assistance
The Single-Family Home Repair Program evaluates damaged homes and helps make repairs needed to protect a homeowner’s life, health, and safety. The program gives consideration to seniors over the age of 62, families with children under 18, and people with disabilities. In cases where homes are severely damaged, the program will reconstruct homes for homeowners.
The Fair Housing Act protects individuals and families from discrimination in the sale, rental, financing, or advertising of housing based on race, color, religion, family status, national origin, sex, or disability. HCD is committed to promoting fair housing and providing affordable homes in all neighborhoods.
