2019-2020 Emergency Program

The 2019-2020 Emergency Program is now accepting applications.  This program provides grants up to $5,000 for repairs to address “life-threatening” situations (i.e. hot water heater replacement, electrical issues, and furnace replacement).  The program is open until set aside funds are exhausted.

All applicants must be homeowners, meet the low-to-moderate income standards as set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and reside within the corporate limits of the City of Decatur.  The residential unit must also be feasible.  The Emergency Program funding is provided by HUD and will be made available as an immediate grant.
