Helping to fix serious structural issues for Austin homeowners.
 
GO REPAIR! addresses substandard housing conditions to make safe and barrier-free homes for Austinites. Low-income families struggling to make required home repairs may be eligible. Grants are up to $15,000 to fix structural issues for homeowners.

The GO REPAIR! Grant is to help fix dangerous conditions, such as; collapsing floors, decaying roofs, faulty electric and plumbing leaks.

Home modifications can ensure Austinites can get around their home safely. The grant is also to make homes more accessible for homeowners with disabilities.

Who is eligible?
