Question by redd_rocket: Is there a federal grant for home improvement for lower-medium income families?
I am looking to make some needed home improvements, such as new siding and insulation, new windows, new garage doors, and so on but cannot afford it on my own. I work 40+ hours a week but my line of work does not pay the best. I would be grateful for any useful information. Thank you.

Check with your local government offices under the Community Development Program or contact HUD Housing and Urban Development office (Federal Government)

Question by Family: Federal Home Improvement Grants, how do they work, how do you apply?
I see advertisements for federal grants that do not have to be paid back that are for everything from small business funding to home improvements. I was wondering if anyone has ever received a grant for home improvement and how you apply and/or qualify to receive one. Basically, how do I get one to do home improvements and renovations??

Most of the home improvement grants are for renovating property in low income areas, and you have to use the property for section 8 rentals, not your own home. google search it, I found the site that way. There are grants for everything you can think of. It’s a .gov website. Don’t subscribe to any service that wants to charge money for finding grants for you, those svcs. are just a scam. Anyone can research and apply. I spent two days scrolling through all of the grant information just to find out that I didn’t qualify for anything. Some of them are pretty funny, I saw one grant for immigrants from Africa to study ancestrial drumming. The comedian David Letterman has set up a grant for ” mediocre students with little ambition”. The only grant I was eligible for was down payment assistance for first time homebuyers, the application process was so long I closed on the house and moved in before I heard anything.
