City of Peoria program aims to help those in need with emergency home repairs

Antiquities are displayed at a newly opened museum in the southern city of Basra, Iraq, Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2016. Iraq inaugurated the new antiquities museum in Basra on Tuesday, with pottery, statues, coins and other artifacts dating back more than 2,000 years. Only one hall was opened due to a shortage of funds. The museum is housed in one of Saddam Hussein's former palaces, which had briefly served as a mess hall for British troops after the 2003 U.S.-led invasion that overthrew him. It will showcase artifacts dating back to 400 B.C. that tell the history of the oil-rich city on the Persian Gulf. (AP Photo/Nabil al-Jurani)

It’s getting hot again. Imagine having no A/C this summer.

Fortunately, the City of Peoria has a program designed to help low-to-moderate income households to get repairs on their home which are necessary for safety.

It’s called the Emergency Home Repair Program.

“They may not be able to afford things that are important to live day to day,” said City of Peoria neighborhood programs coordinator Jaime Gonzalez. “Such as roofing, electrical, plumbing issues, air conditioning, water heaters, things like that.”

It’s a federally-funded program and families do have to meet certain qualifications, be a Peoria resident and own their home.

“As we turn into summer and warmer months and people are turning their air conditioners back on, they find that they are broken or not working properly,” she said. “And so we do see an increase in calls at that time.”

Specifics of the program can be found on the city’s website.
