Housing Rehabilitation & Lead Remediation
The Mayor's Office of Housing and Community Development provides assistance to single-family homeowners and to owners of multi-family properties to rehabilitate property in need of repair and/or in need of lead remediation. We offer both grants and loans for these services with each program having its own qualifying criteria. Please read through the information carefully before contacting our office for assistance.
CalHOME PROGRAM - A program to assist homeowners of one to four unit properties to address code deficiencies, health and safety hazards, deferred maintenance, meet housing standards, remediate lead-based paint hazards, and to provide accessibility modifications. Loans are for low-income homeowners who are unable to secure conventional financing.
LEAD HAZARD CONTROL PROGRAMS - Provides grants to both single and multi-family homeowners to remediate lead hazards. Priority is given to properties with children under the age of 6.
