ACFS HOME REPAIR PROGRAM
The Akwesasne Child & Family Services Home Repair Project will be made available to community members with children under 18 years old living in their home, whom require repairs such as: mold remediation, roof repair, repair siding, adding insulation, furnace replacement, etc.
The Department of Infrastructure, Housing, & Environment’s (DIHE) Housing Sector will administer this project for houses that require home repair, not cosmetic renovations. The maximum amount available is $7,500 per civic address. The project will take place from June 2021 – March 2022.
- Applicant must be head of household
- Must be for primary residence
- Must be residing in MCA’s jurisdiction (northern portion of Akwesasne)
- Pay any overages over the $7,500 — 2 quotes, if possible
- Must be in good standing with the DIHE Housing Sector
The goal of the ACFS Home Repair Fund is to provide required repairs for our homes with children in an effort to provide a comfortable, safe living environment. Our aim is to also provide assistance for low-income families to ensure they have the necessities to live comfortable as well, like heat, electricity, water, and no mold issues. Priority will be given to those households that had applied in the past and did not receive any assistance. All applications will be approved by ACFS.
