Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Program

About the Program

The Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation program is funded by the HUD Community Development Block Grant and DCA HOME Investment Partnership Program.  Assistance is available to low-to-moderate income households located within the Hinesville city limits.  Eligible applicants receive assistance in making necessary repairs to ensure the home meets minimum property standards. 

Typical repairs include HVAC, plumbing, roofing, doors, windows, and electrical systems. Loan conditions include a 5-year affordability period in which the homeowner will be required to continue residing in the home. At the conclusion of the affordability period, the loan will be forgiven.
