Housing & Neighborhood Preservation Program Assists Eligible Households With Replacing Defective Heating System Equipment

Tuesday, December 14, 2021

​Virginia Beach Housing & Neighborhood Preservation can help eligible homeowners replace defective HVAC equipment through the Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Program. The program helps make home rehabilitation more affordable for low- to moderate-income homeowners who own and live in their home in Virginia Beach. Loans and grants are provided to eligible applicants for emergency home repairs in order to remove health and safety hazards, exterior home rehabilitation and correcting certain code violations. The program is not intended for making routine maintenance repairs to systems or equipment.

Other eligible emergency activities include replacing defective air conditioning equipment; correcting electrical, gas and plumbing hazards; correcting defective roof/ceiling assemblies in life-threatening situations; and making accessibility and usability modifications.

Assistance is provided based on the availability of funding to applicants who meet income and other eligibility requirements. Program details can be found at www.vbgov.com/home-rehab. For more information, call Jill Rinaldo at (757) 385-5834 or Frank D' Angelo at (757) 385-5743.
