Contractors for Housing Rehabilitation

Program Purpose

The purpose of the Grand Prairie Housing Rehabilitation Program is to prevent deterioration, slums, and blighting influences in a community through the revitalization and conservation of the existing housing stock. The program seeks to preserve and restore stable, viable, and environmentally pleasing neighborhoods within the city. In doing so, families of low and moderate income will be assisted in securing decent housing, and the burdens placed on a city because urban deterioration can be averted.

The Grand Prairie Housing Rehabilitation Program is administered by the Housing and Neighborhood Services Department (HNS), and funded through a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Housing rehabilitation assistance is performed on eligible properties within the city limits of Grand Prairie.
