Single-Family Housing Rehabilitation Program
Single family site-built homes may be rehabilitated to improve livability, increase energy efficiency, extend the life of the home, or modified for accessibility. Mobile homes on leased property do not qualify for this program. The home is inspected by a Rehabilitation Specialist to determine if the repairs requested are within the scope of the program. Eligible home improvements must meet minimum HUD's Housing Quality Standards.
A contractor is selected by the homeowner to perform all work. The contractor must be licensed by the state of Washington, bonded, and qualified to perform the necessary repairs.
