Berks Stands Up members at a Whole Home Repairs event


In July 2022, we secured a historic investment of $125,000,000 in housing and climate justice with a Republican-controlled legislature.

This legislation, the Whole-Home Repairs Act, was designed to keep working people in their homes, make their homes safer and more energy efficient (enabling lower environmental impact and lower utility bills), and streamline their access to this program. The program is available to low- and moderate-income homeowners and small landlords who guarantee affordable rentals. We also fought for and won an additional $50M line item through the 2023 Budget. We continue to advocate to make WHR a recurring, fully funded program.
