Our Programs


Emergency Home Repair Program (EHRP)

HPI, in partnership with local government departments, community organizations, and volunteers, provides emergency home repairs for low-income families within our service area (James City County, York County, and the City of Williamsburg). We aim to rehabilitate houses that do not meet housing quality standards so that our neighbors may have a home that is safe, warm, and dry. Accessibility modifications, such as installation of wheelchair ramps, fall under our home repair program.


In cases in which repairs are not enough to bring a house to quality standards, HPI will work with the homeowner to demolish the existing house and build a new home in its place. Home Replacement is decided on a case basis and is ran through the Housing Partnerships Funding Group, a sister agency that provides construction financing and can make low- to no-interest loans.

Our assistance programs are application-based. Housing must be owner-occupied to be eligible. Applicants must demonstrate financial need and the existence of an emergency according to federal and state guidelines. Applications can be downloaded below and returned to our office by mail or drop off. For questions about the program or the application, call us at 757-221-0225.


Indoor Plumbing Rehabilitation Flex Service Area

The Indoor Plumbing Rehabilitation (IPR) loan program provides forgivable loans to low-and moderate-income owner-occupants of substandard housing, which have no indoor plumbing, including no potable water or a failed septic system. This lien form will require recordation of a deed of trust, forgiven monthly over a 120-month term. The program will also provide for the general rehabilitation of these units, and for accessibility improvements or relief from overcrowded conditions, as needed, once the primary income, ownership, and failed plumbing criteria are met.   
Below are the areas in which we serve for the IPR Flex Program

James City County
York County
New Kent
Charles City
King George
Isle of Wight
Prince George



Fast Facts:

  1. Over 50 homes in the Historic Triangle still lack indoor plumbing.

  2. The State of Virginia provides funding to assist families with the installation of indoor plumbing. However, in the remaining homes lacking indoor plumbing, additional funds are required to cover the high cost of alternative sewer and water solutions needed.

  3. The Providing Indoor Plumbing for Everyone (PIPE Fund) will fill this void by providing the gap funding needed to cover all project costs.

  4. Housing Partnerships Inc. is working to provide indoor plumbing to everyone – “Connecting the Historic Triangle.”
