Fund ARPA Whole-Home Repairs Program

To: Rep. Gaydos, Sen. Robinson

From: A constituent in Imperial, PA

July 8

I am writing to express my strong support for increasing the funding of the ARPA Whole-Home Repairs Program by an additional $50 million. This program, administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, has proven to be a critical resource for homeowners and renters across the state, ensuring that our housing infrastructure is safe, energy-efficient, and resilient in the face of future challenges. The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of stable and healthy housing. Many families in our community have struggled to maintain their homes, facing financial hardships that have delayed necessary repairs and improvements. The Whole-Home Repairs Program addresses these urgent needs, offering assistance that can prevent minor issues from becoming major hazards. By providing comprehensive support for home repairs, accessibility modifications, and energy efficiency upgrades, this program not only enhances the quality of life for residents but also contributes to broader public health goals and economic recovery. Investing an additional $50 million will extend these benefits to more households, ensuring that the most vulnerable members of our community receive the help they need. Moreover, this funding will have a multiplier effect on our local economy. Home repair projects generate jobs for contractors, tradespeople, and suppliers, fostering economic activity at a critical time. Enhancing energy efficiency also reduces utility costs for homeowners, allowing them to reinvest those savings into other essential areas of their lives. In light of these compelling reasons, I urge you to support this vital program by advocating for an additional $50 million in funding. Your leadership on this issue will make a tangible difference in the lives of countless Pennsylvanians, strengthening our communities and ensuring a more resilient future. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
