The BRA has been funded by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to administer a housing rehabilitation program. The program provides financial assistance to owner- occupied, single-family or owner-occupied, two-family, low-income homeowners to perform necessary home repairs and improvements. Financial assistance is offered in the form of a 0 percent interest, deferred payment loan, that is payable when the property is sold, transferred, or refinanced.
Typical repairs may include a home’s roof, chimney, electrical, plumbing, floors, windows, foundation, general carpentry, and/or structure.
The BRA is prioritizing those applicants with emergency repairs that may endanger the safety, health, and well-being of the household. All homeowners are encouraged to submit an application, even those with non-emergency repairs. Applications will be placed on the wait list in the order they were received.
If you are interested in applying for the program please contact the BRA office at 508-586-3887 or fill out the per-application at the link below and return it to the BRA office located at 50 School Street, Brockton, MA 02301. Once you have done so your pre-application will be reviewed and you will be contacted. All information is confidential.
