The City of Brighton Minor Home Repair program is now accepting applications from homeowners needing assistance in making necessary heath and safety repairs to their home. The program, administered through Adams County, provides grants, technical assistance and contract management to eligible homeowners.
To be eligible, applicants must be an Adams County resident living within Brighton city limits, own the home (name must be on the Deed of Trust), live in the home as primary residence and meet established income guidelines.
Common repairs made through the program are furnaces, plumbing, hot water heaters, windows, electrical and roof repair. Priority is given to items needed to establish a healthy, safe and sanitary home.
An initial telephone interview is conducted to determine preliminary eligibility. After the phone interview, an application is mailed to homeowners who meet preliminary eligibility requirements and income guidelines. If the application is approved, the Adams County housing coordinator will conduct an on-site visit to determine essential repairs needed.
The City of Brighton is partnering with Adams County Community Development Department. Adams County Community Development (ACCD) supports the economic, social and cultural well-being of neighborhoods throughout the county. ACCD is a division of Adams County Community and Economic Development Department, which is dedicated to managing the quality of life issues that impact individual homes and neighborhoods.
