Minor Home Repair Program (MHRP)
About the MHRP
The one-year pilot Minor Home Repair Program was developed in response to the City Council's implementation of Blue Springs' first Property Maintenance Code.
The MHRP was designed with the desire to offer a program to primarily assist homeowners who do not have the financial means to respond to code violations that may exist at their single-family, residential property.
Applying for MHRP Funds
The Minor Home Repair Program (MHRP) will begin accepting applications on November 3, 2008. The City is accepting applications until Friday, January 30, 2009.
The emphasis of this program is on neighborhood conservation, and only minor exterior home repairs will be eligible. The program will encourage a high level of maintenance among property owners in a neighborhood by providing a grant to help cure the most visible home defects which may adversely affect the value of the home as well as surrounding properties.
