  • Private Owner Rehabilitation Loan:  Funds are available to help homeowners in Jackson County bring their homes up to code.  CHIP Home Rehabilitation assistance is no interest, deferred and 100% forgivable five-year loan.

CHIP Program assistance is provided to correct health and safety problems in the home, as determined by the CHIP Program.  It is not permitted to make cosmetic changes or upgrades to the home.  CHIP Program assistance is based on the cost of the project.  If the project is greater than the maximum allowed under the grant, assistance will not be possible.
