Our Programs

Home Repair Program

WC CDC manages the popular Home Repair program for all towns in Washington County, as well as West Greenwich and Exeter.

This program provides grants and loans to income eligible home owners. These grants and loans are intended to ensure folks remain in their homes by performing reasonable and necessary repairs. We focus on code violations, health and safety issues, and any other repairs needed to maintain a healthy safe and sanitary dwelling.

We help with roof, window, electric, plumbing and structural repairs that are necessary for your health and safety. Septic and well replacement programs are also available.
