Home Reinvestment Program

The City of Whitehall is committed to supporting current homeowners in their endeavors to improve their homes, neighborhoods and the Whitehall community. The City has created the Home Reinvestment Program and the Sidewalk and Driveway Approach Replacement Program to financially assist residents with their front-facing exterior home projects. Qualifying Whitehall homeowners are able to receive reimbursement of 50 percent of an exterior home remodeling project or 25 percent for sidewalk or driveway approach improvements, up to $7,500 total.
