Lewisville Launches Free HVAC Restore Program for Low-Revenue Householders

Lewisville residents with limited incomes can breathe a little easier thanks to a new housing initiative aimed at fixing those pesky HVAC problems at no personal cost. The recently announced Minor Housing Rehab Program, supported by the Community Development Block Grant, promises to help eligible homeowners with essential repairs or replacements to their heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.

According to the city of Lewisville, Texas, the program is aimed exclusively at low- to moderate-income residents who could help keep their homes comfortable and safe year-round. To qualify, residents must have owned their home for at least two years, use it as their primary residence, be current on mortgages and insurance, earn less than $57,500 per year as a single homeowner, and have less than $20,000 in savings have liquid assets. Each additional household member increases the income eligibility by $8,250.

Applications are currently being accepted, but the service will only be provided by an HVAC contractor selected and vetted by the city. The deal is straightforward: Once approved, all funds for the necessary work will be disbursed directly from the City of Lewisville to the contractor, so residents won't see a single invoice.

Additionally, City staff will assist applicants in Hakha Chin, Spanish and English during scheduled sessions at the Lewisville Public Library to ensure that no language barriers impede participation in the program. The first of these sessions took place on Tuesday March 5th, with two further opportunities for personal assistance on Wednesday and Thursday, where Spanish assistance will also be available.

Those in need of this vital support have been directed to the City's official website where they can find further information, guidelines and online applications. It's a solid move by the city government, which recognizes that maintaining a home goes beyond aesthetics and is about maintaining the health and well-being of community members. Every resident deserves warmth in the winter and relief from the heat in the summer, and through the Minor Housing Rehab Program, Lewisville ensures its citizens have just that.
