Property maintenance was already a challenge for many low-income homeowners prior to today’s heightened unemployment crisis and rising construction costs. These circumstances amplify the need for communities to create, enhance, and expand necessary programming to assist vulnerable property owners in preserving the quality of their homes. These investments are critical to the health and safety of residents, the financial well-being of homeowners and the prevention of more significant disrepair and vacancy down the road. This webinar will highlight the importance of local leaders prioritizing repair assistance, with a special focus on efforts in the city of Philadelphia to help owners fix up their properties.
