The City of Somerville is currently accepting applications to participate in the Heating System, Housing Rehab, and Lead Paint Safe Somerville Program ("the Programs"). This form consists of initial questions required for consideration of acceptance into the Programs.
This form is "Step 1" of the application process. Additional documentation will be required to complete the application. Your application will not be considered for eligibility unless steps 1 and 2 are completed.
Step 1: Please complete this form in its entirety and click "submit." A staff member will contact you to answer any questions and discuss next steps.
Step 2: Deliver additional required documentation to OSPCD-Housing Division ATTN: Andres Bueno, 93 Highland Avenue, Somerville, MA 02143.
Please make an appointment to hand-deliver applications and materials by contacting 617-625-6600 ext. 2584. Leave a message with your name, phone number, and preferred drop off time. A staff member will reply to confirm.
Step 3: When we receive completed applications and all requested income documentation for all applicable units on the property, we will determine your eligibility and contact you with next steps.
All information provided will be treated confidentially.
Once submitted, you will have the option to print this form.
If multiple units of a property are applying for the program, one application will need to be completed per unit. All residents of that unit must provide applicable income documentation.
A staff member will contact you within two (2) business days of receiving this form.
Income limits are the same for the Heating System, Housing Rehab, and Lead Paint Safe Somerville programs.
The Heating System program applies to the
homeowner's unit only.
The Lead Paint Safe Somerville and Housing Rehab program applications are based on the income of the
occupants of the property.
Tenants may qualify; however, tenants must have consent from the property owner to participate.
Any work that begins before acceptance into the program is
eligible for retroactive funding or reimbursement.
There are specific restrictions and conditions associated with all of our funding sources. Funding for our programs is limited. Funding will be available based on completeness of the application, City priorities, and income eligibility. For the Lead Paint Safe Somerville program, units with children under the age of six (6) and expectant mothers will be prioritized.
Vacant units may also qualify for the program. Please contact 617-625-6600 ext. 2584 to discuss program requirements.
