Chino Valley homeowners struggling to bring their homes in compliance with safety and code requirements are encouraged to take part in the Owner Occupied Housing Rehabilitation Program where they can apply for financial assistance from the Arizona Department of Housing (ADOH).
The Town Development Services Department is accepting applications from homeowners that
meet income and other requirements to receive a forgivable loan up to $45,000 for repairs or$55,000 for replacement mobile homes.
Some of the requirements are that the home must be owner occupied and the household income
must be less than $44,800 annually for a family of four or $35,850 for a couple.
Also considered are age and disability factors, as well as the amount of repairs needed to bringthe home into compliance.
This is the second year the Town of Chino Valley has participated in the ADOH grant program.
In 2015 the town had $275,000 available to homeowners, including Lisa and Travis Moody whoqualified to have their Copper Drive home completely replaced.
“This was a dream come true,” said Lisa Moody as contractors put the finishing touches on her
new home. “It all started with the flyer the town mailed out, and while it took a while to get done(including the inspection and application process) everyone with the town was very knowledgeable and nice to work with. Everything from start to finish was done very professional and courteous.”
Homeowners will be receiving an information flyer on the program in their utility bills and additional information is available by contacting contacting Ruth Mayday, Development Services Director or James Gardner, Town Planner at 928-636-4427.
