 Housing Program Info

The Housing Rehabilitation Program utilizes Community Development Block Grant
(CDBG) funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD),
passed through the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) and/or
program income received by the County. The County administers the housing
program and is responsible for executing all program activities in compliance
with the adopted policies, procedures, and applicable regulations and requirements,
including those guided by HUD and MEDC. Marquette County reserves the right to
require guidelines that are more stringent

The Marquette County Planning Division administers the Marquette County Housing Rehabilitation Program to provide assistance to homeowners in Marquette County to help ensure their residence is safe, habitable, and livable. By providing home repair assistance to qualified homeowners, we are able to improve the housing stock, strengthen the local tax base, implement energy efficiency standards, and help residents age in place.

How the Program Works

Types of Repairs

  • Roofing
  • Plumbing
  • Wells & Septics
  • Electrical
  • Furnaces/Boilers
  • Water Heaters
  • Home Accessibility (i.e. ramps)
  • Other health and safety items
