Don't Get Left in the Cold! Housing and Neighborhood Preservation Offers Assistance for Heating System Repairs

Monday, December 10, 2012

Now through May 15, the Department of Housing and Neighborhood Preservation offers affordable loans to eligible Virginia Beach homeowners to replace defective heating system equipment through its Emergency Home Repair program.


The Emergency Home Repair program helps low- to moderate-income homeowners make emergency repairs or modifications to remove health or safety hazards. Other eligible activities include replacing defective air conditioning equipment in the summer; correcting electrical, gas and plumbing hazards; and correcting defective roof/ceiling assemblies in life-threatening situations. The program also assists with making homes more accessible for the physically disabled. It is not intended for making routine maintenance repairs to systems or equipment.


Program participants must own and live in the home and cannot own additional property. For additional eligibility requirements and income qualifications visit Assistance is based on availability of funding. For more information, contact Olin Walden at 385-5760.
