The Emergency Home and Accessibility Repair Program (EHARP) provides funds to remove urgent, emergency health and safety hazards. It also addresses physical accessibility barriers for low-income Virginians. The program provides funding to local administrators to undertake physical repairs that improve housing conditions. Eligible repairs can include plumbing, structural, electrical, roofing, as well as installation of wheelchair ramps and other accessibility modifications.
Applications for local agencies to participate as EHARP local administrators are announced and accepted periodically. No application round has been announced at this time. A list of current approved agencies can be found below.

Assistance from local administrators is available to occupants based on income on a first-come, first-served basis. An applicant’s total gross household income from all sources cannot exceed 80 percent of area median income (AMI), adjusted for family size, which is currently determined by HUD.
Homeowners and tenants (with homeowner written approval) are eligible to apply. The maximum assistance is $4,000.
