The City of Topeka’s Housing Services Division administers several housing rehabilitation programs for both single-family homes and multi-family (rental) homes for the benefit of low-income families. Our wide array of programs can help sustain and revitalize homes to provide decent and safe housing.
The Emergency Home Repair Program assists with repairs for low-income homeowners who need repairs to bring their homes up to code and make the home safe, livable, and healthy.
