Housing Rehabilitation

​​The Mifflin County Housing Rehabilitation Program provides grants for home repairs to income eligible homeowners. The County will pay for repairs that correct deficiencies in the home that are potential health and safety problems.  Minor or cosmetic rehabilitation activities are not funded by this program.

Investor-owned (rental) properties  are not eligible for assistance through this program.
 
In order to qualify for this program, applicants must be a resident of Mifflin County and meet the following conditions:
Applicants must meet HUD low and moderate income household limits (see table below).
Applicants must be the owner-occupants of the single family home they wish to repair.  (The applicant’s name must be on the deed.)
Applicants must have homeowners insurance, flood insurance (if applicable) and real estate taxes must be current
