Unfortunately, on December 29th, 2011, the State of California with a ruling by the Supreme Court, moved forward to eliminate all Redevelopment Agencies in the state of California. Due to this decision, the City will no longer be able to fund housing grants and loans for Westminster residents. The City will cease the processing of all grant and loan applications. We apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused and appreciate your understanding.
We will continue to keep you updated and will contact you if any legislative changes occur. If you are interested in contacting the state lawmakers to voice your concerns and continuation of affordable housing rehabilitation programs, the contact information has been listed below:
Governor Jerry Brown (916) 445-4571
Senator Lou Correa (714) 558-4400
The Mobile Home Improvement Grant Program is designed by the City of Westminster to assist qualified mobile home owners with exterior rehabilitation to their mobile homes. Qualified residents may receive up to $10,000 towards repairs. Examples of allowable repairs include:
Roof repairs or replacement
Patio or stair repairs
Heater repairs or replacement
Eligible homeowners must own and occupy their homes, provide proof of ownership and residency, be below the program income caps based on household size and must provide all documentation necessary to complete an application.
All work must be completed by a City approved licensed contractor and must comply with all applicable federal, state and local regulations. All permits must be obtained from the Department of Housing and Community Development.
Mobile homes manufactured prior to 1978 may contain some lead-based paint. In order to receive a grant, if your home was built before 1978, the City may test for the presence of lead-based paint utilizing a third party vendor for any painted or coated surface expected to be disturbed. The cost of the testing(s) will be deducted from the grant award.
The property must be a mobile home.
The property must be in need of repairs to: correct existing code violations, improve the exterior/interior, resolve health and or safety issues.
