Housing Rehabilitation Assistance Programs
Home Ownership Preservation Program
On November 29, 2021, County Executive Alsobrooks launched the Home Ownership Preservation Program (HOPP) with a $1 million investment. HOPP can provide up to $30,000 to homeowners for health, safety, energy efficiency, and accessibility repairs in qualified, owner-occupied homes. Households under 50% of the area median income (AMI) can receive up to $50,000 in services. There are income, location, and eligibility requirements. DHCD has partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Maryland to implement this program in the County’s qualified census tract areas with special emphasis on homes within one mile of a future Purple Line transit stop.
Home preservation services may include the following: roofing and gutters, electrical repair, plumbing repair, tree removal, stairlift and accessibility equipment, HVAC replacement and repair, water heater replacement/repair, and more.
All interested parties MUST submit an inquiry either via Habitat for Humanity's website or by mail (by contacting them at 301-990-0014 x 19). Applications can only be forwarded to those recorded on their inquiry list.
Housing Rehabilitation Assistance Program
The Housing Rehabilitation Assistance Program (HRAP) provides income-qualified households with an affordable rehabilitation loan for the purpose of upgrading the quality of deteriorated dwellings to contemporary minimum property standards, including the elimination of housing code violations.
The Prince George's County Housing Rehabilitation Assistance Program (HRAP) has committed all of its funds and unfortunately can no longer accept applications. We encourage all interested homeowners to apply to the Maryland Housing Rehabilitation Program offered through the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development.
For more information about the Maryland Housing Rehabilitation Program, call 800-638-7781 and ask to speak to the Special Loan Program representative.
