Renew Detroit

Renew Detroit Flow Chart


Renew Detroit is a program that provides free repairs to eligible Detroit homeowners using funds from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The program will be held in two phases, with Phase 1 calling for 1,000 Roof Replacements. The application for Phase 1 closed on October 31, 2021. If you missed the application period, click on the “Inquire about Phase 2” button below to submit your contact information in order to be notified regarding the opening of the Phase 2 application.

Application review includes anything from investigating and correcting mistyped addresses or birthdates, to verifying disability directly with the applicant (where applicable), to requesting, reviewing, and matching partner information with our applicant information – and everything in between. Although we have experienced some delays due to the high volume of applications, we are tentatively expecting application selections to be announced in March 2022, revised from our original projection of February 2022. There will be 3 notification milestones throughout the review period:
