Deadline Extended for KC home repair, paint programs

After an overwhelming response, the deadline to apply for City of Kansas City, Mo., 2020 home repair programs was extended until Friday, September 25 at noon.

The Neighborhoods and Housing Services Department is accepting applications for the City Home Repair, Targeted Home Repair and the Paint Program. It was originally set to expire Fri., September 18, at noon.

The Home Repair Program includes work on main water lines, supply lines, water heaters, sewer mains and drain lines; electrical systems on service entrance and main panel, including updating existing branch circuits; exterior painting; and roofs, including stripping down and installing new roof materials.

The Paint Program provides materials for homeowners who are prepared to paint their homes, including scraping off loose paint, washing off grime and repairing rotten wood. Approved applicants have their choice of over 450 in-store paint colors.

The Targeted Home Repair Program is available to residents of the Blue Hills Neighborhood in Northeast Kansas City, as well as other neighborhoods across the city. Eligible residents located in these areas will receive a choice of two repairs, subject to funding, including plumbing, electrical systems, exterior painting, roofs and furnaces.

These programs are offered at no cost to low and moderate income households within the City of Kansas City, Mo. Funding for the City Home Repair Program comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Community Development Block Grant Program.

Applicants must be single-family Kansas City, Mo., homeowners who have not received city home repair services in the last five years and must meet the 2020 Income Guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Rental properties, mobile homes and duplexes do not qualify. 

Nearly 450 residents have already applied for assistance, and more than 200 applicants have been approved. Once approved, it takes approximately four months for work to begin.

These programs will be offered again in 2021. Applications can be emailed to CHR@kcmo.org, and must be submitted in PDF format. More information and application forms can be found on the city’s website.
