The Housing Rehabilitation Program
is a federally-funded, interest-free deferred loan of up to $35,000 to qualified low and moderate-income homeowners. All applicants are placed on a waiting list. Those eligible for the program will be financed a contract for home repairs made between the homeowner and the general contractor. Assistance is unavailable to owners of mobile homes.
Anyone receiving rehabilitation assistance under this program is subject to repayment of the full amount of the loan when they sell, rent, refinance for equity, secure a home equity loan or otherwise convey (transfer the title) of the property within 36 months from completion of the contract. After 36 months, the loan is 50% forgiven. The remaining 50% is the responsibility of the loan recipient and is due upon transfer of the title.
