- Repairs that are only cosmetic in nature.
- Perils covered by insurance claims.
- Repairs to a duplicate item when one is working may not be eligible except to prevent additional deterioration. For example, in a house with two bathrooms where one has a working toilet and the other has a leaking toilet; if the leak can be stopped by closing the water cutoff to the toilet, no repair is allowed since a working toilet is available.
Unsafe and substandard structures that cannot be made safe for habitation with the maximum allowed or less will not be eligible for assistance. The owner will receive a letter notifying of the hazards and why assistance is being denied. Under such circumstances, Community Development Division will recommend a household seek safe housing as soon as possible.
