Residential Rehabilitation Program

The City of Maywood is pleased to invite all eligible property owners to participate in the Residential Rehabilitation Grant Program. The grant is available to homeowners that own property occupied by extremely low, low, or moderate-low income families. Multi-family properties with a maximum of two units may apply for assistance, if the property owner occupies one of the units.

The program’s primary goals are to preserve housing and the quality of older neighborhoods, rehabilitate deteriorated properties, and provide assistance to homeowners to maintain their homes as safe, sound and sanitary dwellings. The funds are available on a first come first serve basis. The funds must be used to first correct hazardous structural conditions; to make improvements considered necessary to eliminate blight; to improve accessibility; or to correct building and health code violations.

Participation eligibility requirements are:

  • Single family residences and residential properties with two units or less.
  • Homeowners with annual gross income not to exceed 80% of the County median income for the 2009/2010 fiscal year, please see brochure.

If you have any questions or need any assistance with the application and/or forms please feel free to call (323) 562-5727.
