The Statewide Emergency Repair Program (SERP) addresses emergency conditions threatening the safety of qualified Delaware owner-occupants and household members.  The SERP provides qualified emergency home repairs to qualified homeowners.

Delaware State Housing Authority (DSHA) has selected MHDC to administer the SERP.  MHDC has formed statewide partnerships in an effort to provide service to qualified homeowners.
