KANSAS CITY, Mo. — There is new help for home improvement available for qualified Kansas City homeowners.

The City Home Repair Program Application and the Paint Program Application both opened May 2.

Selected homeowners can get help to pay for repairing roofing, plumbing, electrical, and furnace issues.

The income qualification is 80% or less of the median income.

Applicants must be able to prove they own and live in the home. The property must also be a single-family home and the owner may not have received home repair assistance from the city in the precious five years to qualify.

Eligible applications may become ineligible if conditions of the home are determined to be beyond the scope of program guidelines.

Applicants will need to provide proof of homeownership, proof of income, checking and savings account statements, and a completed application.

The forms can be completed online:
