Do you need a new roof but can't afford to have it replaced?
If you are low income we can help you.
We have grants available through our roof replacement program.
1. Reside in the Chattanooga city limits.
2. Meet HUD Low to Moderate Income qualification (within 80% of area median income).
3. House must be owner occupied.
4. All City and County property taxes must have been paid through the current year.
5. Senior Citizens and disabled homeowners will get priority consideration.
The work will be done by professional contractors who will provide a five year comprehensive warranty on labor, material and installation. The program is through a five year forgivable grant. After five years the total amount of the grant will be forgiven.
We have a limited amount of funding for the roofing program. We will try to help as many people as possible this year. If we run out of money and can't help you this year, we will put you on the waiting list for next year’s roof replacement program.
