This program provides home improvements which meet Michigan State Housing Development Authority's (MSHDA) Housing Quality Standards (HQS) for issues related to roofing, furnace and plumbing as well as many others.

CAA provides home inspections and acts as fiduciary agent (trustee). Home Rehabilitation consists of a loan which must be repaid, however, there is no interest on the loan and it can be deferred until the sale of the home or until refinancing.

CAA also offers Emergency Repairs which are those immediate repairs considered to be necessary to prevent a threat to health or safety.
