Whole Home Repairs Rally

May 24 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm

On Tuesday, May 24, we will rally on the steps of the Capitol alongside Senator Nikil Saval, Representative Innamorato, Senator Argall, Senator Hughes, Make the Road, PA Stands Up, POWER, Housing Alliance, and so many more.

The Whole-Home Repairs Act (SB1135), introduced by Pennsylvania State Senator Nikil Saval in March 2022, is the first bill of its kind in the nation. Pennsylvania can be a leader in preserving affordable housing and training a local workforce to meet the growing demand. The Whole-Home Repairs Act fills in the gaps in our current system by taking a three-pronged approach:

  • It funds habitability repairs and energy efficiency updates for homes throughout Pennsylvania by providing grants to homeowners and forgivable loans to small landlords with affordability restrictions.
  • It allocates resources for support staff to help people access the right programs in the right order to meet their needs and maximize their access to holistic repairs.
  • It boosts retention in home repair and weatherization training programs and pre-apprenticeship programs, including by providing stipends to trainees, so that our state can build up the skilled workforce it needs.
