Housing Rehabilitation Program
The Housing Rehabilitation program provides assistance for low to moderate-income homeowners in Jefferson County for essential repairs and necessary improvements to their home.
What We Do
The Rehab Program is a way by which homeowners in Jefferson County can make or keep their homes safe, decent, and affordable. It primarily assists the elderly and disabled on fixed incomes and working, low to moderate-income families.
It helps preserve home ownership by offering a means for the low-income to do necessary work without risk of losing the home to unmanageable debt.
The Program promotes stability, livability and value of the neighborhood as a whole by upgrading individual houses that are in disrepair or are not maintained because the owners don’t have the resources.
If you qualify for the Program you may receive a low interest loan (3% or 5%) with affordable payments to cover the cost of rehabilitating your home. If a member of your household is elderly or disabled and on a fixed income, you may qualify for a deferred loan.
All deferred loans are paid back when the house sells or is no longer the owner’s primary residence and are not transferable. As loans are paid back into the Program these funds are used to help other qualified homeowners.
The maximum loan amount is $25,000.00.
We will help you get competitive bids and find a qualified contractor who can do quality work at a reasonable cost, prepare the loan and construction documents, inspect work and authorize payments as the work progresses. There is no cost to you for this assistance.
Call 303-403-5423 for more information or to have an application sent to you.
