Now through April 22, 2024, low and very-low income Manatee County residents can submit entry forms through the Housing Rehabilitation/Replacement Program. The program provides 0% interest-deferred payment 30-year loans to make code-related repairs to single-family homes or replace dilapidated single family housing structures. Through this program, housing conditions can be corrected and modified to improve the health, safety and welfare for the people who live there.

Program entry forms are available on Manatee County’s Rehabilitation/Replacement Program Webpage. Those who need help completing and submitting an online entry form can call (941) 749-3029.

On April 29, 2024, County staff will use a lottery-style drawing to determine the order in which eligible applicants will be qualified and assisted. Funding will be awarded to households who meet the eligibility requirements until all funds have been committed. To be eligible, households must be located in unincorporated Manatee County or City of Palmetto and be within the program standards for low and very-low income and property value.
