Bipartisan legislation creates one-stop shop for home repairs
Rep. Sara Innamorato July 8, 2022 | 2:30 PM
HARRISBURG, July 8 – Pennsylvania will become the first state in the nation to enact Whole-Home Repair legislation thanks to its inclusion in a bipartisan budget plan that was passed Friday, said state Rep. Sara Innamorato, one of the chief architects of the bill.
“The passage of the Whole-Home Repair Act as part of the Pennsylvania budget will help ensure that every Pennsylvanian has a safe and healthy home,” Innamorato said. “I am thankful for my fellow legislators for supporting this idea, which will create a one-stop shop for home repairs and weatherization while helping tackle blight and addressing one of the chief issues I have been working on – access to affordable housing.”
The first-in-the-nation program would provide:
“This legislation would not have passed without the tireless work of many organizations and individuals who organized a broad, bipartisan effort in the state House and Senate to get this bill passed, and I want to thank everyone who contributed to our cause,” Innamorato said. “We still have a lot of work ahead to address the affordable housing crisis in our commonwealth, but today is a good day and a victory for the people of Pennsylvania.”
