If you are in need of some safety-related repairs to your home, specifically your HVAC system, we have a resource you will want to check out. A program put on by the city of Virginia Beach can help you get the money you need to fix safety-related issues in your home.

This program is called the VB Housing and Neighborhood Preservation Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Program.This program assists eligible homeowners repair and replace defective HVAC equipment with the help of grants and loans.

“Keeping your home in good repair protects your investment and helps everyone enjoy a better quality of life. Sometimes it’s difficult to afford necessary repairs and improvements.”
Virginia Beach Housing & Neighborhood Preservation

The program’s goal is to provide affordable home rehabilitation and repairs to low- and moderate-income homeowners in Virginia Beach. With the loans and grants provided, applicants can afford emergency home repairs in order to remove health and safety hazards, correct certain code violations, and make changes to the home’s exterior.

What the Virginia Beach Program Does

Virginia Beach offers eligible homeowners, dependent upon your level of income and the type of repairs needed, either a grant or an affordable loan (to be paid back over an extended period of time) to fix up their house.

These repairs could be to bring your home up to code, to fix health or safety risks, to make your home accessible to physically impaired individuals, and/or to replace defective housing equipment. All of these changes can be made to mobile homes as well.

The program offers three types of assistance.

1. Emergency Assistance

Read Our Trusted Reviews

Technician Rick did an outstanding job of completing my annual service check, correcting minor problems and cleaning my system prior to the summer season. What impressed me most is that he took the time to point out other issues in my attic (loose fitting at the hot water heater) and even outside (water spigot leaking) and fixed both on his own since they were easy fixes. What a great service professional and so rare to find someone honest and willing to take a few extra moments to help out. Thanks for a great experience!
