Homeowners needing urgent assistance with plumbing, electrical, mechanical and limited ADA barrier removal work may be able to receive help from the City of Kansas City through its Emergency Home Repair Program.

“This program can help lower income homeowners who have an urgent repair need, such as a furnace repair or replacement during the heating season months or replacing a broken water line going to their house,” Housing Section Manager Doug Bossert said.

The city will accept applications from eligible homeowners through July 31 or until funds have been exhausted.

Eligible applicants are homeowners who own only one property, have not received assistance from this program within the past five years, and meet the following household annual income guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development:
One person – $41,100
Two people – $46,950
Three people – $52,800
Four people – $58,650
Five people – $63,350
Six people – $68,050
Seven people – $72,750
Eight people – $77,450
