The city of Chattanooga’s Department of Economic and Community Development will kick off its Minor Home Repair Program on Monday.
The program assists low-income households in all nine City Council districts with minor home repairs that address code violations and/or home repairs related to the health and safety of the property owners.
Last year, the city received 229 applications and worked with two non-profit partners, Group Missions and World Changers, to provide repairs to more than 100 homes across the city.
On Monday, Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke and City Council Vice Chairman Chip Henderson will welcome Group Missions to the city before they head out to work on more than 60 homes throughout the week.
World Changers will come to Chattanooga for a week in July.
