Keeping Homeowners Warm this Winter Text Size

Mayor Alex B. Morse reminds homeowners that the City of Holyoke has
financial assistance available for repair and replacement of residential
heating and hot water systems.  The Neighborhood Improvement Program
provides sliding scale financial assistance to income eligible homeowners
in the City Holyoke to make repairs or upgrades, to convert from one fuel
source to another, and to make other modest home repairs. 


“Ensuring that Holyoke residents are warm and safe this winter is a
priority.  I encourage all residents in need of heating system repairs or
other home repairs to contact Olde Holyoke Development Corp. for an
eligibility screening.  Although the program is limited to low and moderate
income households, many working families are eligible to receive
assistance,” Mayor Morse said. 

Neighborhood Improvement Program funds can be combined with other financial
programs including the Holyoke Gas and Electric’s Residential Energy
Conservation Program.   Homeowners without heat or hot water will receive
expedited application review.  The Neighborhood Improvement Program does
not provide fuel assistance.

Homeowners should contact Olde Holyoke Development Corporation at
413-533-7101 or www.oldeholyoke.org for additional information on program
requirements and an application.  This program is made possible by the
United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community
Development Block Grant Program administered by the City of Holyoke Office
for Community Development.

For additional information on this press release, please contact the
Mayor’s Office at 413-322-5510.
