Are you a homeowner dreaming of improvements for your home? The City of New Port Richey is here to help with the Home Improvement Reimbursement Grant (HIRG) Program!
The HIRG can help homeowners repair and improve their home's exterior. Repairs may be coupled with beautification elements, such as landscaping, which enhance the home's "curb appeal" and have a positive impact on the attractiveness and marketability of homes and neighborhoods. If the homeowner follows all rules and procedures, the funds will not need to be repaid to the City.
The HIRG Program promotes "street friendly" housing by encouraging homeowners to include porches, windows, and doors oriented to the street and parking to the side or rear of the home. The program promotes a sense of community by encouraging residents to spend time in their yard and on their front porch.
Are you apprehensive about design? Staff is here to help you make decisions when choosing colors, materials, architectural enhancements, and landscaping.
