Owner-Occupied Repair Program
Merced makes health- and safety-related repairs for extremely low-income senior and disabled homeowners who can no longer afford to keep their homes safe, sanitary or structurally sound. The program serves homeowners who make 30% or less of the Area Median Income (AMI), or $13,100 a year for a person living alone in 2016.
Merced has repaired more than 570 homes.
The goal of Merced Housing Texas’ Single-Family Program is to acquire and completely rehabilitate dilapidated houses or constructs new infill homes in San Antonio for re-sale to individuals or families whose income is less than 80 percent of the Area Median Income.
Merced has repaired and sold 22 homes. This program is currently on hold.
