Only single family, owner-occupied residences are eligible for assistance under this program. Rental property, investment property, vacant property, and commercial property are not eligible. HOMEOWNER REHAB LOAN TERMS Homeowners may be awarded up to a $20,000 Rehab Loan. This is only a maximum. There is no guarantee that homeowners will receive $20,000. Financial assistance will be provided to the homeowner as a deferred payment loan. The Rehab Loan will be provided as a mortgage secured by the property. 1. For homeowners with household income below 80% of area median income, loans will be deferred and forgiven after 5-10 years, depending on the amount of CDBG Funds borrowed.
