Home and CDBG Rehab



General Rehabilitation:
 Thanks to Mayor Joe Sinnott and the City of Erie Dept. of Economic and Community Development, ERA is able to offer assistance in the form of home rehabilitation to income-qualified homeowners to repair basic building systems such as roofs, electrical, plumbing, and to address lead-based paint hazards.  General housing rehabilitation is targeted to the Community Development Impact Area, as defined by the City of Erie. That area is bounded by the north side of 26th Street, North to the Bayfront, Cranberry Street on the west side and Bird Drive on the east.  ERA performs some work on rental properties, mostly limited to lead hazard control and handicap accessibility modification. Depending on funding rules and availability, general rehabilitation assistance may be used for the second unit of owner-occupied duplexes.  Contact the
Erie Redevelopment Authority at (814) 870-1540 for additional
details.
