Housing Rehabilitation Funds Available in Orange County

Orange County has recently been awarded $175,000 by the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency under the 2017 Essential Single-Family Rehabilitation Program Loan Pool (ESRLP17). The program provides funds to assist with the rehabilitation of moderately deteriorated homes that are owned and occupied by lower-income households. Typical repairs may include roof replacements, door and window replacements, and electrical and plumbing upgrades.

To be eligible, the household income must be below 80% of the area median income. For example, the annual income of a single person household cannot exceed $41,100 or exceed $46,950 for a two person household. In addition, the household must include an elderly (62+) or disabled person living in the home. All financial assistance is provided as a deferred, forgivable loan. ESRLP17 assists eligible households by facilitating aging in place, meeting minimum housing code requirements, promoting long-term affordability, lowering operating costs, and stabilizing pre-1978 homes that include children aged 6 or under whose health is threatened by the presence of lead hazards.

Interested persons should contact Renee D. Holmes, Housing Program Coordinator, with the Orange County Housing, Human Rights and Community Development Department at (919) 245-2495 for an appointment. Applications will be accepted beginning October 2, 2017 through October 31, 2017 at 5:00 pm.
