Housing Rehabilitation

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Housing Rehabilitation program is a home improvement program that benefits Mesquite residents.  It is grant funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and is administered by the City of Mesquite Housing and Community Services Department. 

Mesquite Park Residents - Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative

Mesquite Park is a designated target area for the CDBG program.  As such, some of the CDBG Rehab funds have been specifically designated for Mesquite Park and the surrounding neighborhoods.  The City of Mesquite is now accepting applications for repair or replacement of items that could include roofing, vinyl siding, windows, doors and other repairs to the exterior of the home up to a maximum grant amount of $20,000.  To see if your home is located in the Mesquite Park area, click here
