Homeowner Rehabilitation Program

Documents

The Homeowner Rehabilitation Program preserves affordable housing for low-income households by fixing or repairing health and safety deficiencies in their home. The residence must be occupied by the homeowner and have a household income at or below 50% of the area median income (AMI). Current income limits can be found at: HUD Income Limits.

The Rehabilitation Program is available to homeowners who live in the following areas:

  • Grandview
  • Harrah
  • Mabton
  • Sunnyside
  • Toppenish
  • Union Gap
  • Wapato
  • Zillah
  • Unincorporated Yakima County
The City of Yakima has its own HOME Program that serves the residents of the City of Yakima. The cities/towns of Selah, Moxee, Granger, Tieton, and Naches participate in the State's HOME Program by default because they do not participate in a local HOME Program.
