COMMUNITY HOUSING IMPACT AND PRESERVATION

The Community Housing Improvement Program (CHIP) is designed to provide financial assistance to income-eligible homeowners whose property is in need of repair. The Department of Development partnered with the City of Xenia (www.ci.xenia.oh.us) and obtained a second CHIP grant (FY 14 CHIP) that allows the County to serve the City of Xenia. The grant will be used for owner-occupied property rehabilitation and home repair with in the county. These repairs (for example – new furnace, electric upgrades) are eligible for a forgivable deferred loan and funds are now available. The table below highlights the maximum income limits allowable for your household to qualify.

These limits apply to our CHIP grants, loans, and programs. Income limits for other programs may be different, depending on the program’s parameters and funding source.

The Greene County Department of Development is not permitted to use its CHIP funding in the City of Fairborn, Residents should contact their community development office to inquire about similar programs. City of Fairborn phone number is (937) 754-3056.
