Hi, Are there any senior programs/grants/organization/financial company I can apply to? I am retired and receiving SS benefits and a pension. My house is in dire need of repair and is becoming a safety issie. I am especially concerned with the front sidewalk, front steps very large tree limbs. I have contacted a couple of neighborhood contractors, but they seem a bit shady for me to work with. Any advice that you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

Please help INDIVIDUALS with ZERO Income! We've been falling through the cracks for years! Please contact me & I will list the ROADBLOCKS I've faced for many years - and the changes that need to be made to help millions of US! I did nothing wrong to get in this Zero Income position - I'm honest, loving, wise & intelligent - & SOCIETY NEEDS ME! But I'm invisible & have NO CHOICE & NO VOICE. Zero Income should NOT mean that I'm TOO POOR to qualify for Poor People's Housing - but I'm too much paperwork & too financially risky. NOBODY has Incentives or Provisions to open their doors to me. Thank you for helping the HOMELESS, VETERANS, SENIORS, LOW-INCOME FAMILIES, NATIVE AMERICANS & DISABLED - but don't let INDIVIDUALS w/ ZERO INCOME continue to be FORGOTTEN. ** IS ANYBODY LISTENING?!**
I will always be grateful to HUD, my life and my kids' would most definitely be harder if it had not been for HUD, I will be eternally grateful. However 3 is a crowd in some cases, and from my view point it is when it involves HUD. The local housing authorities take care of all the paper work, all a HUD Provider/Landlord has to do is sign the lease, go to the bank with the money and take care of maintenance. The middle man is what is holding HUD and housing back and creating a big hole in the taxpayers' money. HUD should own their own apartments and re do re model , affordable housing whatever makes sense on the agenda. HUD can contract their own maintenance crew. Regular people are being priced out of the rental market because HUD meaning well pays more, and we all know of the old saying"money makes the world go round" the money is going around in one way to the HUD Provider/Landlord that isn't necessary at all. Capitalism feeding off socialism at it's height. Thank you HUD, no ill will toward anybody availing of free speech
Hello, I am looking for the full version (259+) pages of the July 2012 "The Healthy Program Guidance Manual." The online version on most websites only go to page 34, which is about the 1st 2 chapters and the book contains 6 chapters plus Glossary and Appendices. I am in the process of trying to establish a Healthy Homes Program and there aren't many resources. This is supposed to be the premier gudiance document. Please help. City of Cleveland Department of Public Health.
I live in Red Bay, AL. I live in the "projects," where the landlord ignores phone calls, lets my friend's apartment get over run with roaches. We can't get the utility guys to come out, unless we make repeated calls to the office. I have a light in my kitchen that won't come on, sometimes. They.said they knew what wrong, but they couldn't fix it until the light quits. My friend has.a water heater that works 2 out of 5 times. When they do come around, it's hateful, snide remarks. We could use a little help.
Well in this housing we been reporting about issues nothing has been done theres ants in the walls on floor panels living we wasted sooo much time and money that could go to children the roof theres mold this ppl know they dont do nothing
