  • 60 years of age or older
  • Resident of Denton County
  • Owns their own home (not renting; does not own any other properties)
  • Repairs must fall in “NEED” rather than “WANT” category.  In other words, “needed” repairs are those that are essential to provide a safe living environment, whereas “wants” are repairs that are desired more in terms of niceties.
  • Proof of income (previous year’s IRS return and/or copy of Social Security Retirement/Medicare/Medicaid eligibility) must accompany each application.  Must provide income verification for all household members.
  • Household income does not exceed amounts listed below.
