    The City of Redding is offering an Emergency Repair Program for income eligible owner-occupants of homes and owner-investors of rental properties within the city limits of Redding.

    The purpose of the program is to furnish home repair assistance when a homeowner rehabilitation loan is not feasible.

    Landlords participating in the program may receive up to $2,500 for accessibility improvements in exchange for a good faith effort to rent to disabled individuals.

    The basic eligibility requirements are as follows:

    • The property must be owner occupied
    • Household income must be less than 80 percent of median income for Shasta County
    • The property must be located in a residentially zoned area within the Redding city limits
    • Borrower must have fire insurance at the time of signing a loan and agree to maintain it; the borrower shall provide evidence that property taxes are current; or for mobile homes, that registration is current

    Owners of rental housing units, and low-income, eligible tenants of rental units that need handicapped accessibility improvements are invited to apply for assistance under the ERP.

    Tenant-based improvements may only be accomplished with approval from the respective landlord, who would receive grant monies up to $2,500 for the modification work in exchange for executing a five-year participation agreement.

    The grant is offered as an incentive to install handicapped accessibility improvements to units with disabled tenants.
