Home Repairs
The Pierce County Human Services Home Repair Program is funded through a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The program provides home repairs to income eligible populations in the form of a grant.

  • Participants in the program must reside in Pierce County (outside the city limits of Tacoma, Lakewood, and Bonney Lake)
  • Participants must own their home.
  • Units must be owner occupied.

How It Works
A Pierce County Human Services Housing Rehabilitation Specialist inspects the home for needed repairs, prepares bid specifications, and assigns work to contractors based on type of work needed. 
The goal of this program is to assist in improving housing conditions by providing emergency repairs at no cost to the eligible resident, thereby maintaining existing housing stock available to low-income households in Pierce County. Click here to fill out an application.
