The Housing Authority administers housing rehabilitation programs for the cities of Napa and American Canyon, Calistoga and the Town of Yountville. These programs provide low and no interest loans and grants to assist in home repairs for low-income residents. Housing staff oversees the Project Management, including conducting a property inspection, documenting the scope of work, developing bid documents, conducting bid walks, facilitating the selection of eligible contractors, preparation of the rehabilitation contracts, management of the rehabilitation work for consistency with contract specification, and approval of all contractor payments.
The Housing Division of the City of Napa has an Emergency Home Repair Program for low-income City of Napa homeowners. If you are below 80% of Median Income for your family size (see Median Income Limits Chart below), you may qualify for free emergency home repairs.
Grant funds can be used to repair windows, doors, leaking roofs, plumbing and electrical problems and more. This program is available to owners of conventional homes, mobile homes, condominiums, and town homes. Emergency Repair Program Application
