Menifee – The City of Menifee has announced that grants are being offered to city residents, providing up to $15-thousand dollars, for the rehabilitation of owner-occupied dwellings including single-family and mobile homes.
The Single Family Home Improvement (SFHI) grant is available to low-income homeowners up to the age of 61 and covers several types of repairs including roof replacement, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC.
To qualify, the home must be within Menifee’s city limits, owner-occupied, and the applicant must be current on their mortgage, property taxes, and local income taxes. The household must also meet the annual household gross income as indicated in accompanying chart.
“Helping local homeowners ensure their homes are safe and in good repair strengthens our overall community,” said Community Development Director Cheryl Kitzerow. “The City of Menifee’s SFHI grant is a great opportunity for those in need to make meaningful home improvements that might otherwise be out of reach.”
The funds are derived from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), passed by Congress and signed into law by President Joseph Biden in March 2021.
To apply, qualified residents should contact Celia Olivas at (951) 723-1750 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for pre-eligibility determination and to begin the application process. The SFHI grant will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
