COVID-19 Response

The Town of Gilbert’s Emergency Home Repairs Program will remain open but with limited and modified access during the national health care emergency.

Residents experiencing an emergency that would be considered an immediate health and safety related issue will be served in a case-by-case basis through our vendors that have agreed to residential visits utilizing heightened safe-work practices. Emergencies including plumbing leaks, sewer restrictions, electrical outages and air conditioning related needs will be assessed and addressed by priority. Contractors and staff will work with homeowners to minimize personal contact and expedite the work process.  

Homeowners are encouraged to utilize e-mail for a fillable-form application to this program. A link to the application can be found here: Application
