Dinolfo: Support For Home Improvements Available Through County Program

County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo announced that new funding is available to income-eligible homeowners through the Monroe County Home Improvement Program. Grants and loans of up to $20,000 per homeowner will help cover the costs of improvements that meet the criteria.
“Our Home Improvement Program helps families invest in their homes and invest in our community at the same time,” said Dinolfo. “Home repairs like this don’t just revitalize a residence - they also have a transformative effect on someone’s entire life. Our objective is always to support stronger families in Monroe County and that’s why we will continue to help homeowners unlock the potential of their homes and build brighter futures in the process.”
Eligible repairs include structural (roof, foundation, windows, exterior paint or siding), major systems (plumbing, heating or electrical) and accessibility accommodations (ramps, lifts, doorways, bathrooms). Routine maintenance, remodeling and cosmetic improvements are generally not eligible repairs.

Monroe County Home Improvement Program funding is available to residents in all suburban towns, with the exception of Greece and Irondequoit. Residents of those two towns, as well as the City of Rochester, should contact their respective municipal governments, who administer their own home repair programs.

Grant funding is limited to income-eligible recipients. Program guidelines are available on the Monroe County website at:

Applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact the Community Development Office at 753-2000 for additional information.
