The Emergency Capital Repair Grants Program is authorized by Section 202(b) of the Housing Act of 1959 (12 U.S.C. 1701q-2). Section 202b was amended to provide grants for `substantial capital repairs to eligible multifamily projects with elderly tenants that are needed to rehabilitate, modernize, or retrofit aging structures, common areas or individual dwelling units.' HUD accepted applications on a first-come, first-serve basis and awarded emergency capital repair grants until available amounts were expended.
The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number for this program is 14.315.
The Emergency Capital Repair Grant is designed to provide funds to make emergency capital repairs to eligible multifamily projects owned by private nonprofit entities designated for occupancy by elderly tenants. The capital repair needs must relate to items that present an immediate threat to the health, safety, and quality of life of the tenants. The intent of these grants is to provide one-time assistance for emergency items that could not be absorbed within the project's operating budget and other project resources.
A total of $4,893,248 was awarded to 16 projects and 1,809 units. In accordance with section 102(a)4)(C) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989 (103 Stat. 1987. 42 U.S.C. 3545), the Department is publishing the grantees and amounts of the awards in Appendix A of this document.Start Signature
