Home Rehabilitation & Needs
Help for home repairs, insulation and energy upgrades, and water well safety and improvement, as well as homebuyer and foreclosure counseling assistance.
Great Lakes Community Action Partnership (formerly WSOS Community Action Commission) will now provide home rehabilitations and repairs for Erie County residents, thanks to a $1.4 million grant. The Community Housing Impact & Preservation (CHIP) grant awarded to Erie County in October 2017 will allow the county to provide income-eligible residents with necessary home repairs or rehabilitations. GLCAP, which has successfully operated other CHIP programs in other counties since 1994, will administrate the grant.
Rocky Ridge homeowner Linda LaFountain is looking forward to lower utility costs and a warmer home. Linda, a retiree, is a recipient of the Great Lakes Community Action Partnership (formerly WSOS Community Action Commission) Home Weatherization Assistance Program (HWAP). Her house is like many homes that are weatherized through the program, with walls that have no insulation, ductwork with unsealed seams, and other issues that reduce her home’s overall efficiency. Weatherization will fix these issues.
