Building A Better Community
One Family At A Time
How We Serve
Collaboration. Community. Commitment.
Our focus at CFP is to empower citizens to move out of poverty and create opportunities for them to build a better life. We do this through advocacy for those without a voice, involvement in community programs, and projects that build a better community.
Home Repair Program
- The Home Repair Program’s (HRP) primary purpose is identify issues which may pose a threat to the health and safety of the home’s occupants and to provide repairs for those issues. Recipients must be of low-and-moderate-income (LMI) City of Temple homeowners.
- Funding for HRP is provided through City of Temple, Housing & Community Development Department, as well as by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the federally funded Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).
- The program’s goal is to preserve existing housing owned and occupied by low-and-moderate-income Temple households and to revitalize existing older neighborhoods within the city.
- Temple Residents who would like to apply or learn more about the program should call the Housing Resource Center at 254-298-5999 or go to the City website here.
