Home-Owner Rehabilitation Program

As the first time home buyer program can help spur home ownership for first time buyers in Wichita this is another program that helps out current homeowners to repair and rehabilitate their primary residence. Again it can be used by local Kansas communities outside the federal HOME entitlement communities of Kansas City, Johnson County, Topeka, Wichita and Lawrence.

State recipients can apply for program funds up to $300,000 for administering a homeowner rehabilitation project in their area. Grant funds pass through the State and assistance is provided to homeowners in the form of a loan.

The entire properties are then required to be rehabilitated to full building codes. Competitive bidding practices must be used when hiring contractors, lead based paint compliance must be met and any other federal variances or standards which is not always an easy thing.

present real estate owners that make less than 80% of the area medium gross may apply.

This program can also be considered another way to help to control blight in the City by giving means to people to fix their homes.
