What is an Owner Occupied Housing Rehabilitation Program?
The City of Fairbury has received funding through the Nebraska Department of Economic Development (NDED) to establish an Owner-Occupied Housing Rehabilitation Program. Eligible homeowners may receive assistance to make structural, mechanical, electrical, weatherization and plumbing improvements to their homes.
Will I have to repay the assistance?
Conditional Grant. Very low income households will qualify for a 100% Conditional Grant that will be forgiven after 5 years if owner does not move, sell or rent their property within the 5-year affordability period.
How much assistance is available?
Financial assistance per household generally ranges from $10,000 - $35,000 per unit. The maximum per housing unit is limited to $40,000. This limit unfortunately may exclude certain homes from participating in the program. For example, if a home will not meet basic standards after injecting $40,000 in assistance, then the home will not be eligible for the program.
