City of Saginaw, Michigan

The City of Saginaw is preparing to launch Phase II-Roofs of the ARPA Home Rehabilitation Program, which utilizes ARPA funds to provide home rehabilitation assistance on owner-occupied dwellings in the City of Saginaw. In September 2022, City Council approved $3.8 million in ARPA funding for this program, which will be rolled out in various phases to include improvements to furnaces, roofs, and windows to qualified applicants.

Phase I-Furnaces was launched in December 2022. Over 400 applications were
accepted at the two Open Application Events held in City Council Chambers. After careful review of each application, city staff began the inspection and installation process. To date, the City of Saginaw has completed the installation of furnaces in over 48 homes and has begun the inspection and installation process on an additional 157 homes. We anticipate spending $1 million of the allocation on Phase 1-Furnaces. The City of Saginaw is committed to ensuring all regulations of ARPA are closely followed as we work through this process. We are grateful for
our dedicated staff who have made the review of applications and the installation process possible.

A formal presentation on Phase II-Roofs of the ARPA Home Rehabilitation Program will be presented at the April 3 City Council meeting at 6:30 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall,1315 S. Washington Avenue Room 205. Yolanda M. Bland, Director of the Office of Management and Budget/Community Services, will provide an update on Phase I-Furnace installations and also explain the important details of Phase II-Roofs. Citizens are encouraged to watch the presentation to learn more about Phase II of the program, including how to apply, application dates and qualifications for the program.

Tim Morales, City Manager, commented on the ARPA Home Rehabilitation program, “It’s exciting to be able to provide this assistance for our residents. The program is designed to assist those residents with the greatest need, and we are seeing the impact of this program in our community. When Phase I is complete, over 200 homes in the City of Saginaw will have received new furnaces. We anticipate that Phase II-Roofs will have a similar impact for city residents who qualify for the program. I encourage citizens to watch the April 3 meeting to learn more about the program and how to apply.”

The April 3 City Council meeting will be broadcast on SGTV, Channel 191, and streamed live on the City’s YouTube channel at
