Some people are living in homes that are in dire need of upgrading and unfortunately these people may not even be aware that there are free government grants for home improvement that may be available to them.
Every week while on my way to work I pass by homes that look like they are falling apart. I do not know how anyone can live in them, as they look so bad. So, why don’t these homeowners just fix up these dilapidated houses or tear them down and start over? Usually it is because they cannot afford it. Home remodeling costs money and those who are of low income are too worried about how they are going to buy food or pay for water before they think about fixing up their house.
But for these people there are government grants for home improvement that they can receive. If you are living in a home that is unhealthy or unsafe and you qualify, based on income, you can get help from the government. And this is money that does not have to be paid back. This is money that will fix termite damage, leaky roofs, poor plumbing and more.
If your house is unsafe for you and your family you need to get information about this type of assistance from the government. Every year the government sets back billions of dollars for different grant opportunities, and many of them are geared towards the low income citizens, who just cannot afford to fix their house, buy food, or even pay rent. This includes programs like the government grants for home improvement, TANF, and LIHEAP.
