Upper Floor Residential Rent Rehab Program
The Upper Floor Residential Rehab Program provides eligible property owners up to $20,000 per unit for the redevelopment of vacant upper floor space into quality affordable rental housing.
The purpose of the program is to assist owners of mixed use buildings in targeted areas with the redevelopment of upper floor vacant space into quality rental housing. The funds may only be used to cover the costs associated with the redevelopment of the residential space. The rehabilitation of the property must include improvements to the exterior visible from the public right of way if necessary, paid from other sources available to the owner.
The program is funded through the Community Development Block Grant Program and is administered by the Covington’s Development Department.
