Boston Senior Home Repair

Home Repair Assistance

The City of Boston has a great opportunity for Seniors that own homes and live in the South End, Roxbury, Back Bay, Downtown and the Fenway. Take a look at the United South End Settlements’ Senior Home Repair program . It is designed to assist Seniors 62 years of age and older, any disabled person of any age. Applicants must meet the HUD income requirements and be owner-occupant residents within the previously mentioned neighborhoods.

There are two types of repair assistance available:

Minor Repairs including installing grab bars and handrails, repair of interior stairs, installing door bells for the hard of hearing, fixing exterior door locks, and repairing broken windows, toilets, faucets and drains.

Major Rehabilitation includes repair or replace roofs, replace furnaces that are not functioning, replace exterior windows, update electric panels and wiring, and rebuild porches.

This program lets you receive assistance by experienced contractors, and allows access to 0% interest deferred home loans.

Many cities and towns offer helpful programs for home owners that people are not often aware of. Please check with your local town hall for options that may be available.
