The goal of the Marquette County Housing Rehabilitation Program is to preserve existing affordable housing stock throughout the County by providing assistance to low and moderate–income homeowners. With a little financial help, these homeowners can make a big contribution to the overall health of the neighborhood in which they live. The Housing Rehabilitation Program helps homeowners maintain their residence as safe, sanitary dwellings that meet local housing codes and helps to prevent houses from becoming dilapidated nuisance properties.
The County of Marquette has been administering the housing rehab program since 1994 which has distributed almost 3 million dollars in rehabilitation funds throughout the county. These are Federal and State funds provided to the County through the Michigan State Housing and Development Authority (MSHDA) so all projects are subject to federal regulations and must meet U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), MSHDA and local codes by the time the work is complete. This includes lead hazard reduction procedures on all qualified houses built on or before 1978.
