Funding Provided


Repair assessments are made to determine the scope of work and funding.

In your city, Emergency & Minor Repair grants up to $5,000 are available for single family and mobile home owners. Forgivable, zero-interest loans of up to $20,000 are also available for mobile home owners

Loan Terms

Homeowners with income of up to 50% AMI are required to make a one-time payment of $50 toward the total cost of the repair. Homeowners with income between 51% and 80% of AMI are required to make a one-time payment of $100 toward the total cost of the repair.

Repairs are funded by a loan for the remaining costs less a one-time $200 payment in an amount up to $25,000. The loan will be secured through the California Department of Housing and Community Development by filing an HCD-480 lien.

The loan is a no interest, no payment loan for 20 years. After the first 10 years of the loan term 10% of the loan amount will be forgiven each year. After 20 years, you owe nothing.
