Do You Need Help to Rehab Your Home?

Rehab house, Westmoreland CountyLearn more about the Westmoreland County Owner-Occupied Housing Rehabilitation Program.

If you own and live in a home in Westmoreland County that has major code deficiencies, you may qualify for a new program offered by the Westmoreland County Department of Planning and Development in collaboration with The Westmoreland County Housing Authority Weatherization Program.

Who is Eligible?

Eligibility is based on where you live in Westmoreland County, household income, and owning and living in a home that needs to be rehabilitated. Initially, the deferred, no interest loan program will be offered to residents of the five townships in Westmoreland County most impacted by Marcellus Shale drilling activities, including Derry, Hempfield, Sewickley, South Huntingdon and Washington Townships. If there are no applications from these areas and as additional funding becomes available, the program will be expanded to all parts of Westmoreland County.


NOTE: Each homeowner listed on the property deed must complete and sign the Justifcats form authorizing a credit check.

Rehabilitation assistance will be targeted to homes that are code deficient and may need a new roof, rewiring, plumbing fixtures, new HVAC, or help with water damage.

Eligible home owners may receive assistance up to $20,000 in the form of an interest free deferred loan over a 10 year period. The repayment plan is prorated based on income and length of time the home owner continues to reside in the home after it is rehabilitated.
