TAMPA, Fla. – The city is offering critical home repair assistance through the Healthy Homes Program. This program, funded by a nearly $2 million federal grant, aims to help at least 90 low- and moderate-income families stay in their homes.

“Helping families remain in their existing homes is a part of our affordable housing initiative,” said Mayor Jane Castor. “It is our hope that we can give homeowners peace of mind while the program’s funding takes care of expensive repairs that will ensure the longevity of these homes.”

How it Works:

  • The program awards up to $100,000 for repairs to eligible single-family homes in Tampa.
  • Monie Davis, an East Tampa resident, is already benefiting from the program. Repairs to her home include a new roof, drywall replacement, and upgrades to her HVAC system, hot water heater, and more.


  • This program helps families avoid displacement by addressing critical repairs they might not otherwise be able to afford.
  • The repairs ensure the long-term safety and functionality of the homes.


  • You must live in Tampa and occupy the home you’re applying for repairs for.
  • Your income must fall at or below 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI).

While contractors are working on several homes, the City is also looking for new applicants for renovations. The funding lasts fifteen months, and the deadline is August 2025.

“This program aims to assist individuals with limited incomes, in making necessary repairs,” said Kayon Henderson, City of Tampa’s director of Housing and Community Development.  “We are eager to receive new applications to proceed with repairs for families in the upcoming year.”
