The City of Greensboro requests proposals from nonprofits and for-profits to carry out affordable housing development and/or rehabilitation activities eligible for funding under the Federal Home Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program. Read more. 

Emergency Repair Program

The Emergency Repair Program is set up to remove conditions that pose an imminent threat to the health or safety of those who live in substandard housing. The program is not intended to rehabilitate houses to the City's Minimum Housing Code. Emergency repair provides both forgivable loans and low-interest deferred loans that are dependent on household income. This program is only available in conjunction with the Lead Safe Housing Program.


To receive assistance under this program, you must meet each of the following requirements:

  1. You are an owner-occupant of a one-family residential structure within the city limits of Greensboro.
  2. Your property has been inspected by the lead grant program staff or their designated representative and is classified as having conditions that pose an imminent threat to health and/or safety.  

Handicapped Accessibility Grants

Handicapped Accessibility Grants of up to $5,000 are available to qualifying homeowners whose family income, depending on size, does not exceed the income limits set by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (see income table below). This program is only available in conjunction with other Rehabilitation programs or the house can not have any housing code violations.
