City to begin second year of the Property Enhancement Program

Post Date:September 29, 2017
The City of Lewisville will begin its second year of the Property Enhancement Program on Monday, Oct. 2. This program was highly successful in its first year offering financial assistance to qualified homeowners who needed to make essential repairs, but lacked sufficient resources. Through the Property Enhancement Program, a qualified homeowner can receive a financial grant to assist with exterior repairs.

Eligible applicants and projects can be approved for a 50 percent matching grant once per year. Specific rules, qualifying guidelines, and a printable application can be found on the Property Enhancement Program webpage. Applications for the upcoming year will be accepted starting Monday, Oct. 2.

The matching funds are determined by each household’s annual income; it’s a sliding scale so each homeowner will need to submit financial forms for consideration. By example, a household of four people with an annual income of less than $58,700 qualifies for a financial match up to $5,000. A household of four people with an annual income greater than $58,701 qualifies for a financial match up to $1,000. The City will provide up to $3,000 in matching funds for the repair or replacement of a private retaining wall adjacent to thoroughfares, regardless of the household income.

Selection for inclusion in the Property Enhancement Program is on a first-first come, first-served basis. Interested applicants may download and print an application from the City's website, and schedule an inspection with City Staff once the application is complete. Once a project is approved, construction will need to be completed within 180 days. A completed project will be inspected by a Neighborhood Services representative to ensure the repair meets all city codes.

The Property Enhancement Program is a major action step of the “Thriving Neighborhoods” Big Move in the Lewisville 2025 vision plan. The goal of this Big Move, and this program, is to reinvest in residential neighborhoods and promote the long-term vitality of those communities.
