Home Repairs

GNRC administers home repair programs benefiting low-income families, elderly persons, and persons with disabilities with funds from the Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA).

Emergency Repair Program (ERP)

ERP provides assistance to correct, repair, or replace an essential system and/or critical structural problem for low-income homeowners who are elderly (60+) or disabled. This is not a comprehensive home renovation program; the aim is to stabilize the homeowner’s residence by making essential repairs to make the home more livable. 

Due to the overwhelming number of people who have applied for assistance within the last few years, and the limited amount of funds available, GNRC is not accepting new applications. If you would like information on the potential availability of other resources in your area, please call 615-891-5881 and leave your name, phone number, and the city and county of your residence and a team member will return your call as soon as possible.

HOME Program

HOME grants are federal funds awarded through a THDA statewide competitive process to cities and counties. The program goal is to bring sub-standard housing into compliance with HUD housing quality standards and local building codes. Examples of eligible work may include plumbing, electrical, and/or foundation repairs, roof replacement, accessibility improvements, window and door replacement, and other work needed to bring the home up to code. Homeowners must meet certain eligibility requirements.

GNRC is currently administering HOME grants for the cities of Cedar Hill, Coopertown, Eagleville, Hendersonville, LaVergne, Lebanon, McEwen, and Montgomery and Rutherford Counties.  Please call 615-891-5881 for more information about this program.
