Maintaining the appearance of your home is one of the biggest responsibilities of home ownership, but unfortunately not all homeowners are in a position to complete those repairs. To assist them, the City’s Home Improvement Program (HIP) provides qualified low and moderate income homeowners the opportunity to rehabilitate their homes by offering funding to repair hazardous structure conditions, make modifications to improve home access, make necessary repairs, or correct existing code violations. The program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Federally Funded Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program and the City of Diamond Bar.
Examples of allowable projects include:
Abatement of code violations
Water heater replacements
Asbestos testing and eradication
Roof repairs and replacements
Work to electrical and plumbing systems
To be program-eligible, homes must be owner-occupied, single-family detached dwellings within Diamond Bar, and the homeowner’s gross income must be in the low or moderate income brackets. Loans are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. For application materials, contact the Community Development Department at 909-839-7030.
