Community Housing Improvement Program (CHIP) CHIP is a city-wide program to assist primarily low to moderate income homeowners in repairing and rehabilitating their home. Through the CHIP program, homeowners can receive grants and loans of up to $10,000 for repairs and $40,000 for a rehabilitation.
A home rehabilitation addresses all health, safety, energy deficiencies, and accessibility issues throughout the entire home. A home repair is for 1 or 2 large items. To qualify for this program the homeowner must be at or below 80% of the area median income as established by HUD, they must occupy the home, and be current on their property taxes and homeowner's insurance.
