The Forsyth County Department of Housing provides comprehensive rehab repairs to approximately 20 to 30 owner-occupied, single-family dwellings each year. Each project uses Federal, State, and/or County funding and formally solicits as many as five contractors on the Housing Department’s approved Bidders list. Contracts may range from $5,000 to $50,000 and work typically includes replacing roofing, windows and doors, upgrading electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems, new paint, carpet, and cabinetry.
