Housing Rehabilitation Program
The City of Frisco's Housing Rehabilitation Program is funded by the City of Frisco's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). These funds are awarded to the City of Frisco by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Our goal is to preserve existing low and moderate-income housing, to assist very low, low, and moderate-income owners/occupants in bringing their dwellings up to an acceptable standard, and to enhance and revitalize neighborhoods within the city. The home must be a single-family dwelling and owner-occupied by a family that meets U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development income guidelines.
