DUBOIS – The city of DuBois has designated Central Pennsylvania Community Action to administer the Homeowner Housing Rehabilitation Program utilizing the HOME Program, as administered by the Department of Community & Economic Development.

Eligible repairs may include roof, foundation, electrical, heating, plumbing, lead paint assessment, kitchen, bathroom, steps, windows, insulation and doors. Focus for the program is bringing the house up to area codes and homes with lead based paint, especially with children under age 5.
