Does your home need repairs?
The Township of Riverside is looking to assist homes in need of repair
In August 2015, the Township of Riverside will once again be applying to the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs for federal funds to help Riverside homeowners with their needed home repairs. Six Riverside homeowners were previously assisted with the benefits of this wonderful opportunity. Eligible homeowners can receive up to an anticipated $15,000 in repairs or replacements of sub-standard major systems.
The Burlington County Bridge Commission, on behalf of Riverside, has retained Community Grants, Planning & Housing, LLC, (CGP&H) to prepare the application to the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs. It is imperative to demonstrate eligible homeowners’ interest and housing repair needs. If your home needs improvements, submit an easy one page pre-application from the top bar of this website’s home page ASAP. This will get you on the program waiting list which is first come-first served.
Eligible uses of the funds include:
- Heating and Electrical Systems
- Plumbing System Components
- Weatherization (windows, insulation)
- Lead Based Paint Hazard Remediation
- And more!
If you live in Riverside Township, own your home and your total gross annual household income falls below the income limit for your household size, you may qualify to participate in the Program. (Income limits updated annually)
- There is no cost to apply and it does not affect your credit score.
