City of Batavia is looking into a housing improvement grant, needs full support

By Press Release

Press Release:

The City of Batavia is “All-In” to revitalize our city through economic development and housing programs that will raise our standard of living and make our community one of the most attractive places to live, work, and play. The City is considering applying for Federal grant assistance to help income-eligible owner-occupied single-family homeowners with essential home improvements.

Sometimes the smallest things we can do for our neighborhoods can have the biggest impact. Home improvements are a catalyst for changing the look and feel of a neighborhood and improving residents’ quality of life. 

Here in Batavia, Summit Street is a perfect example of a street brought back to life with vibrancy and is now a model for other transformations across our City. When one resident makes improvements to their home, others follow.

Grant funds would enable homeowners to make home repairs with grant and deferred loan funding.  Any single-family homeowner is encouraged to apply.

If you own a single-family home in need of repairs, please click on the Residential Rehabilitation Survey button on the City’s homepage at  You can also pick up a survey in the City Manager’s office, on the second floor, at City Hall. Surveys will also be available at the Richmond Memorial Library. 

The City’s goals include the following:

  1. Create a viable urban community with decent housing
  2. Ensure a suitable living environment for all (safe, sanitary, and habitable dwellings)
  3. Expanding opportunities for all, including persons of low to moderate incomes
  4. Rehabilitate the City one building at a time.

The City of Batavia is requesting your full cooperation to help us obtain housing rehabilitation grant funding. Please complete and mail in or drop off the surveys to the City Manager’s Office, One Batavia City Centre, by July 7.
