Housing Programs

The City implements three Housing Programs within the Community Development Department.

  • Neighborhood Revitalization- Includes the Home Rehabilitation Program which provides loans for qualified rental properties and owner-occupied properties, and the Neighborhood Pride Program which provides special neighborhood clean-ups, public education of laws and services, and code enforcement.
  • Affordable Housing Program- This program provides funds for non-profit agencies to acquire and rehabilitate older apartment buildings or construct new apartments for long term affordable housing for very low income households (persons earning less than 50% of median income). Proposals from Non-profit developers are accepted year-round pending available funds and priorities are met.
  • Inclusionary Housing Program- This program requires developers building 6 housing units or more to provide 15% of the total number of units for very low income households, on-site, off-site, or pay an in-lieu fee, donation of land or a combination recommended by the Community Development Director. The in-lieu fees are provided as a no interest or low interest loan to non-profit agencies for a minimum of 55 years to acquire or build affordable housing.

Home Rehabilitation Program General Information

Each year a limited amount of federal funds are available as grants and loans for use in repairing and improving your home, mobile home, or rental property in the federally designated Community Development Block Grant Target Area. A vital part of the Neighborhood Pride Program is to provide low-cost rehabilitation loans to repair health and safety hazards, and to improve your property for the betterment of the neighborhood.

 

Owner Occupied Loans application form

0% and 3% loans are available to qualified homeowners living in designated areas downtown and in some cases outside of the target area for qualified homeowners with properties with health and safety problems. Grants up to $3,000 may be given for small projects to remedy health and safety issues to persons earning less than 50% of median income. The current income qualifications are listed in the application.
