What is South Bend Home Repair?
Home repair assistance is offered through several programs to meet the needs of residences. South Bend Home Repair programs can help with:
- Lowering utility bills through energy and water efficiency improvements
- Small home repairs (broken doorbells, poorly sealed windows, dripping faucets)
- Referrals for environmental home health hazards (mold, lead, radon)
- Community clean ups
Each program has a different start date and some have income requirements.
South Bend Green Corps is currently taking applications for small home improvements and education to help residents lower costs and increase efficiency in electric, gas, and water utilities.
The Love Your Block application period is closed. Small repair work on approved homes accepted in the Love Your Block program are expected to start in June 2019.
The application cycle for Major Home Repairs over $500 is not currently active (roofs, electrical, HVAC, plumbing, etc.). That cycle is expected to start late Summer/early Fall 2019.
The South Bend/UEA Home Repair Program will begin taking applications on Monday, February 17, 2020. Given the timing of receipt of funding and, the work still to be done regarding the 2019 program, a decision was made to begin taking applications in early 2020. A press release with the specific time period for applications, as well as other pertinent program information, will be provided in early February.
