City of Holyoke Offers Funding to Assist Homeowners with Repairs


Mayor Alex B. Morse is pleased to announce that the City of Holyoke has funding available to assist homeowners with home repairs including ice dam damage, ceiling and water leakage, gutters and roofs. Mayor Morse stated that "assisting homeowners to maintain the quality of their investments is one of my administration's priorities. Homeowners provide neighborhood stability, a solid tax base, and are a source of pride for our community. I recognize that it has been a difficult winter and encourage homeowners to reach out for support." 

The Neighborhood Improvement Program provides grants to Holyoke home owners for a variety of home repairs like roofs, gutters, windows, heating systems, lead paint removal, asbestos removal, electrical, siding, painting and other repairs to correct safety or code violations. Properties must be owner occupied and may be one to four units. Households must meet HUD income and other requirements. 

The program is funded by the City of Holyoke Office for Community Development with federal Community Development Block Grant funds. Olde Holyoke Development Corporation, 70 Lyman Street, Holyoke administers the program on behalf of the City. For additional information, please contact Olde Holyoke Development Corp. at 413-533-7101 or on line at www.oldeholyoke.org
