Beat the Heat with the Virginia Beach Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Program

Program Helps Eligible Homeowners Replace Defective HVAC Equipment

Thursday, June 13, 2019

​For households without air conditioning, high temperatures are uncomfortable and possibly dangerous. Now through Sept. 30, Virginia Beach Housing & Neighborhood Preservation can help eligible homeowners replace defective HVAC equipment through its Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Program.

The Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Program helps make home rehabilitation and repairs more affordable for low- and moderate-income households who own and live in their home in Virginia Beach. Loans and grants are provided in order to remove health and safety hazards, make exterior home repairs and correct exterior code violations.

Other eligible activities include correcting electrical, gas and plumbing hazards; correcting defective roof/ceiling assemblies; and making accessibility and usability modifications. The program is not intended for making routine maintenance repairs to systems or equipment.

Assistance is provided based on the availability of funding to Virginia Beach homeowners who meet income and other eligibility requirements. Program details can be found at For more information, please call Jill Rinaldo at (757) 385-5834 or Frank D' Angelo at (757) 385-5743.
