system must be leveraged with non-federal funds.

improvements. Systems can be replaced in one or
two family units. The owner must be eligible and
live in the building. The person whose unit is
being replaced, if it is not the owner, must also
be eligible and the landlord must agree to pay
between $30-$250 toward cost of materials.
