County and state funds are available to repair single-families owned by local homeowners with low to moderate incomes.

This Community Development Block Grant funding is administered by the county Office of Human Development.

“This investment in our community is vital to ensuring that all residents have a suitable living environment,” said Pike County Commissioners Chair Matthew Osterberg.

Robert Ruiz, Pike County Executive Director of Human Development, said grants of up to $25,000 may be used to replace siding, windows, roofs, heating and electrical systems, and fix other problems.

“Handicapped owner-occupants may also qualify for funds to improve accessibility or maneuverability," Ruiz said.

Interested Pike County residents should contact Ruiz at or 570-296-3434, or stop by the Human Development Office at 506 Broad Street in Milford, to find out if they are eligible. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.
