What is the Housing Rehabilitation Program?

The Housing Rehabilitation Program is designed to provide homeowners with a means to make necessary repairs to their home. The homeowner must live in the house. This is a forgivable loan, where if the homeowner stays in the house for more then 10 years after the repairs are made, there is no loan; it becomes a grant. If the homeowner moves out or sells the home it is prorated accordingly. There are no exceptions.
