Akron Home Repair Program
The Akron ARPA Home Repair Program is intended to address the housing, health, and safety needs of income-eligible households so that Akron residents can maintain a safe, decent, and affordable place to live.
The Program provides up to $25,000 in eligible repairs to those who are most in need. Eligibility will be determined by the City of Akron, and home inspections and eligible repairs will be completed by City-approved, licensed, building contractors. Eligible repairs are restricted to those necessary for improving the health, safety, and well-being of the household.
The Program has limited funding, and thus not all eligible applicants will be guaranteed to receive grants. When more applications are received than money is available, selection preference will be given based on the household’s location, income, and need for emergency repairs.
