Thank You to everyone who called to schedule an application review appointment for the City of Pontiac’s first Home Repair Program. The City received an overwhelming response to the program and we filled all available application review appointments. The City is no longer accepting application appointment requests. Please stay tuned for details on when we will re-open the program.
In March 2021, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act into law. This act is meant to provide aid to both state and local governments, and to promote local communities’ recovery and revitalization following the impacts of COVID-19. The City of Pontiac was allocated $37.7 million from the American Rescue Plan Act. The funding provided under ARPA provides a unique opportunity for state and local governments to make strategic investments in long-lived assets, rebuild reserves to enhance financial stability, and cover temporary operating shortfalls until economic conditions and operations normalize in the wake of COVID-19.
In an effort to put ARPA funds into action, and to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on Pontiac residents, the City established the Pontiac Home Repair Program. The objective of this program is to help homeowners complete major home repair projects that improve the quality and safety of their housing and increase their chances of remaining in their homes long term. To qualify, an individual must be the homeowner, occupy the home, and have a household income that does not exceed 80% AMI. Residents must complete the Pontiac Home Repair Program Application and provide all supporting documentation.
Once the application has been completed with all supporting documents, the Applicants will need to schedule an appointment with the Home Repair Specialist. The application and all supporting documentation will be reviewed and scanned into our document tracking system. The applicant will be notified via phone call and/or U.S. Mail on the status of their application.
Appointments can be scheduled by calling the Home Repair Hotline at (248) 758-3040 and will be accepted beginning June 21, 2023. The application window for Phase 1 of the program will close on August 18, 2023 is closed.
