Qualifying homeowners can apply for a grant/forgivable loan of approximately $15,000 to make necessary home repairs or upgrades through the Johnson County Housing Rehabilitation Program
Applications are now being accepted for qualifying homeowners in Johnson County with grant assistance for necessary home repairs and upgrades. Eligible projects could include furnace, roofing, siding, window replacements, and electrical or plumbing upgrades. Assistance is in the form of a grant/forgivable loan of approximately $15,000 for housing rehabilitation. This is a five-year forgivable loan that recedes at a rate of 20 percent per year. As long as you live in your home for five years after the repairs are complete, you will not have to pay anything. Grants are awarded to eligible applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. The Johnson County Housing Rehabilitation Program is made possible by the Housing Trust Fund of Johnson County, in conjunction with Hills Bank and Trust Company, the Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) of Des Moines, and the East Central Iowa Council of Governments (ECICOG).Who Can Apply:
