The City of Dallas provides a repair and rehabilitation program for single-family, owner-occupied housing units. The Home Improvement and Preservation Program (HIPP) offers qualified homeowners three different ways to improve their homes through a grant, deferred loan or low-interest loan based on the program the homeowner selects. HIPP is designed to finance home improvements and address health, safety, accessibility modification, reconstruction and structural/deferred maintenance deficiencies. HIPP enables homeowners to improve their housing while creating a positive effect in the community.
