Every homeowner knows that home repairs and maintenance are often expensive and inconvenient. In Monmouth County, New Jersey, the Office of Community Development Division of Planning administers a special program. This program can fund home improvements and repairs that are often expensive and necessary. This home repair program is available for qualified homeowners in the county of Monmouth.

In order to qualify for the financial benefits of this program, Monmouth County residents need to meet low-to-moderate-income standards as mandated by the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, also known as HUD.

The approved homeowners can receive up to $10,000 in the assistance for a single repair; this is not a budget for multiple non-related home Improvements.

This specific home repair program made available replaced a former home repair improvement program that was available in 2018. The program is funded through HUD’s Community Block Grant program.

Since the rollout of the program, Monmouth County has assisted approximately 50 families with home repairs at no cost to those individuals.
