The application period opens Monday for a Monrovia grant program that helps pay for residential property repairs and upgrades, officials announced Friday.

Monrovia’s Community Development Block Grant Residential Rehabilitation Program will accept applications from July 8 at 8 a.m. to July 22 at 8 a.m. The program is for low- or moderate-income residents who own single-family homes that need “essential home improvements,” according to the city’s announcement.

The grants provide a maximum of $20,000 per household to cover the costs of services and materials necessary to complete city-approved upgrades, according to the city’s website. The grants must be used for work performed on a property’s main residential unit. The number of grants awards and the program’s total amount of funding were not immediately available.

The city provided this list of maximum income levels for eligible grant applicants:

FAMILY SIZEMAXIMUM INCOME
1$77,700
2$88,800
3$99,900
4$110,950
5$119,850
6$128,750
7$137,600
8$146,500

In deciding which applicants get the grant awards, city staff outlined priority projects that include code corrections, “address number installations,” smoke detectors, exterior weatherproofing, ADA rails and handicapped devices, repair plaster, siding and stucco, roofing repair or replacement, eliminating “conditions detrimental to public health and safety,” testing and treatment of lead-based paint and/or asbestos. Optional improvements include water heaters, HVAC repairs, door repair or replacement, windows and screens.

To ask questions about the grant program, email jwoo@monroviaca.gov or call 626-932-5563.

The application form is available on the city’s website.
