Housing Rehabilitation

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Housing Rehabilitation program is a home repair 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. 

The program is designed to assist homeowners in Mesquite, that qualify as low-income, with up to a $25,000 grant for repairs to address interior and/or exterior deficiencies that make the dwelling unsafe, unsanitary or in need of renewal as determined by staff.
