Program Helps Eligible Homeowners Repair or Replace Defective HVAC Equipment

Temperatures are already starting to rise even though the official start of summer is still a week away. For households without air conditioning, high temperatures are uncomfortable and possibly dangerous. This is especially true for residents most at risk of heat-related illnesses, such as those with heart conditions, asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The Department of Housing and Neighborhood Preservation offers affordable loans and, in some cases, grants to eligible homeowners in order to repair or replace defective HVAC equipment through the Emergency Home Repair Program. The program assists low- and moderate-income homeowners with making emergency repairs in order to remove health and safety hazards. Now through Sept. 30, eligible households with a written statement from a licensed physician stating that air conditioning is medically required for a household member, may have their defective air conditioning equipment repaired or replaced under the program. The program applies to equipment that is part of an existing central heating and/or air conditioning system. Other eligible activities include correcting electrical, gas and plumbing hazards, correcting defective roof/ceiling assemblies in life-threatening situations, and making accessibility and usability modifications. The program is not intended for making routine maintenance repairs to systems or equipment. Assistance is provided based on the availability of funding to Virginia Beach homeowners who meet income and other eligibility requirements. Program details can be found at www.vbgov.com/housing.

For more information or to apply for assistance, contact Frank D’Angelo, housing specialist, at (757) 385-5743.
