Residential Emergency Services to Offer (Home) Repairs to the Elderly (RESTORE)

Residential Emergency Services to Offer (Home) Repairs to the Elderly (RESTORE) provides assistance to low-income senior homeowners. RESTORE funds may be used to pay for the cost of emergency repairs that eliminate hazardous conditions in homes owned by seniors when the homeowners cannot afford to make the repairs without assistance. In response to a publicly-issued Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) issued by New York State Homes and Community Renewal (HCR), non-profit corporations and municipalities submit program designs detailing how they would administer local RESTORE programs, including how they would select eligible recipients, distribute funds, monitor construction, and ensure compliance with program requirements.
