For the past five years, New York-based home improvement contractor Removalspiegel has been helping homeowners fix up their homes in the hopes that they will enjoy better living and work conditions.
In 2016, the company received a $20 million grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to begin installing plumbing, electrical, plumbing fixtures and other fixes at homes that had not been inspected by inspectors.
The agency is also funding Removationspiegel to provide additional services to help homeowners repair or replace their homes.
The grants are being used to purchase $1.7 million in equipment and services, and $200,000 in additional capital, according to a release from the agency.
Removalspaige said in a statement it will continue to provide repairs to homeowners as well as provide “a range of other services,” including technical assistance to homeowners and repairs to water systems.
The company said the grant will enable it to expand its scope and work to meet the needs of homeowners.

The money will be used to help provide loans to assist homeowners with the cost of repairs, and to help them buy their homes, according a release.
