The Wharton Restore Program makes use of funds from the Borough’s Affordable Housing Belief Fund, volunteers and donations for residence repairs, serving to to lower the prices of needed repairs while assisting lower earnings homeowners and residents to proceed to reside independently and securely in their homes and community.

Homeowners should also be prepared to contribute 24 Sweat Equity hours throughout the duration of their restore venture. You must have homeowner’s insurance and keep the property insured against loss or damage.
