The housing rehabilitation program provides interest free, deferred loans that are 80% forgiven over a four year period to make major repairs to rundown, owner occupied houses.

The tenant-based rental assistance is provided in coordination with Shelby Metropolitan Housing Authority.

The repair program provides assistance for houses experiencing a major defect such as a faulty furnace, septic system or leaky roof. CHIP-Program
