Home Rehabilitation Available to Seniors, Disabled Residents

Life could be getting a bit easier for some local senior and disabled residents.

The City of Menifee is offering a Minor Home Rehabilitation Grant to eligible low-income seniors of 62 years of age and older, as well as disabled homeowners. Homeowners with a disabled family member who lives in the house full time are also eligible to apply for the grant.

Homeowners who meet the required income and asset criteria may apply to receive a one-time grant of up to $10,000 for approved home repairs and improvements that will improve accessibility and a safer living environment for seniors and the disabled.

Based on a first-come, first-serve basis, the City of Menifee will grant $120,000 per year to applicants who meet the specified guidelines and requirements.

These grants are part of the Community Development Block Grant Program
administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, which provides
local government with funding dedicated to benefiting low and moderate income residents.

An eligibility and application guidelines information booklet outlining eligible repairs and
eligibility criteria, as well as the required application with completion instructions, is available at
Menifee City Hall, located at 29714 Haun Road.

The information is also available on the city’s website, www.cityofmenifee.us.

  1. I think it's great news that such a program will exist in Menifee -- but can't it just be an 'income only requirement' so that homeowners in Quail Valley would be able to afford repairs .. or hooking up to the city sewer? isn't it about 5k per house at $120K a year...it wouldn't be long before they would all be good to go.
