Funded Community Programs
Whether a dwelling is a rental or owner-occupied, safety is the main concern. Many homeowners are aware that their home is in need of repairs, but are not financially able to undertake the task.
Owner-Occupied Rehab (OOR) Program
The city organized and supports the Warsaw Housing Authority Owner-Occupied Rehab (OOR) Program
. The OOR
program has helped people with varying circumstances, and it is an essential tool to the preservation of housing stock in our community.
Unsafe Building Fund
In early 1998, the City of Warsaw passed an ordinance establishing an Unsafe Building Fund. Monies in this account are used for demolitions, property clean-up, and emergency repairs as defined in the Warsaw City Code. With this fund, penalties received from violators of minimum property codes are used to bring other properties into compliance.
