Home Improvement Assistance Available

Grants may now be awarded through the spring of 2020. Application must be received by March 31st and work completed no later than May 15, 2020.

Funded through a grant from the Michigan State Housing Development Authority, the City of Durand is awarding up to $1,500 per eligible property for needed exterior home repairs. Certain restrictions apply such as income guidelines and ownership requirements.

To be considered eligible the property must be single-family, owner occupied and have an identified need such as the need to resolve an existing building code or other violation. A needs assessment can be performed by our building inspector at the request of the homeowner prior to application. The property must also not be subject to any foreclosure proceedings and the homeowner may not be in default to the City on any taxes or other debts.
