Apply for Single Family Rehabilitation/Replacement (Low-Income)

Are you living in a single-family home that you own, are considered a low-income household, and need to make repairs? The City of Miami provides funding for low-income homeowners for the rehabilitation (including emergency or replacement) of their owner-occupied properties to achieve decent, safe, and sanitary conditions.  

Once your application is reviewed, the Housing & Community Development department will determine if your rehab is an emergency (if you have noted as such), or, in rare cases, if a replacement is needed

Steps

Confirm City Limits and Property Value

  • Your property must be in city boundaries. You can search your address using the County Property website. If your property is in the City of Miami, the folio number will begin with "01". 
  • This website will also display your assessed property value. You must view the total assessed value for the most recent year.
  • The assessed value must be equal to or less than $300,000.

Is this an Emergency?

If you feel your housing condition is hazardous to you/your family, you should note 'emergency' on the application below.  We will send an inspector to determine if the rehab qualifies as an emergency.
