Emergency Repairs

The Emergency Repairs Program assists low-income homeowners living in the unincorporated areas of Leon County. The program provides one-time short-term assistance to address a dire situation and/or prevent further damage to the home. The most common emergency repairs are tarps for leaking roofs and emergency pump-outs of failing septic systems. The Emergency Repairs Program is not intended to be a permanent fix. The program provides short-term assistance to buy time for the homeowner to identify a permanent solution to their housing repair needs. 


Down Payment Assistance 

Two sources of down payment assistance are available; both are administered by partner organizations.

Down payment assistance is available through a partnership between the Leon County Housing Finance Authority (Leon HFA) and the Escambia County Housing Finance Authority (Escambia HFA). Contact the Escambia HFA at or a participating lender to learn more about the program.

The Tallahassee Lender’s Consortium (TLC) also administers a down payment assistance program on behalf of the Leon County Housing Services Division. Contact TLC directly to learn more: 850-222-6609 ext.100.


Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation

Due to the high number of homeowners already waiting to receive assistance, the Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Program is not accepting applications at this time and the waiting list is closed. Check this website for updates.
