The City of Parkersburg, through the use of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, offers the Minor Home Repair Program (MHRP). The MHRP seeks to provide homeowners who may not normally qualify for a traditional home equity loan with a grant to make needed improvements to their home to bring the unit closer to state and local building code standards.
A qualifying applicant for the MHRP must be low-and moderate-income. For example, a family of four with a total household income below $32,640 would qualify for this program.
To comply with federal regulations, the dwelling unit must be located within the City of Parkersburg and be occupied as the primary and principal residence of the applicant.
