Program Description

The Emergency Home Repair (E.H.R.) program is a grant to improve the safety and habitability of a home for qualified homeowners within the City of Bloomington jurisdiction.

A grant of up to $7,500 is available for an owner-occupied home and up to $3,500 for an owner-occupied mobile home. Funds are available to respond to needed repairs with the goal of restoring the health and safety of a home.  For example, the EHR program has helped many households replace a leaking roof and interior water leak damages, install a new furnace or water heater, address electrical and plumbing issues, and repair structural damages.
