Community Development Block Grant


The City of Romulus has limited funding to rehabilitate the housing stock in our City for qualifying low to moderate-income households. These funds may be used to bring homes up to Housing Quality Standards, which may include code violations. The homes must be owner-occupied and you must have lived in them for at least one year.

Please note that this is a no-interest, deferred loan program and repayment will be required when the home is sold or ownership is transferred. Please note that the City's policy is that we will not subordinate rehabilitation liens unless you can prove severe hardship.

Application Process

To qualify for this program, please submit the following information along with the completed Community Development Block Grant Application (PDF) to the Romulus Economic Development:

  • Verification of Household Income (all members of your household over 16 - W2s/Tax Returns/Statements from Social Security and last two pay stubs)
