Sign-ups Welcome for Owner Occupied Rehab Program

The Norfolk Housing Agency, a function of the City of Norfolk Housing Division, helps make home renovation projects a little less stressful for low-income families through the Owner Occupied Rehab Program.

The Owner Occupied Rehabilitation Program has been in operation for many years and is funded by a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) or HOME fund grants and Nebraska Affordable Housing Trust Funds, which are awarded by the Nebraska Department of Economic Development. Currently, the Norfolk Housing Agency assists homeowners in the repair of homes owned by low income families living within the city limits of Norfolk.

The funds would be used to assist income-qualified homeowners in making health and safety upgrades to their home. Funds can be used for: accessibility, weatherization, foundation work, roofing, siding, windows/doors, insulation, plumbing, etc.

Eligible households must income qualify, property taxes must be paid to date, and homeowners must have insurance on the property. Property must be located inside city limits, and cannot be located within a floodplain.

This program has been excellent, providing many families with a safe and healthy living environment while improving the neighborhood and values of area properties. To receive additional information, or to have your name put on a list for the program, please contact the Norfolk Housing Agency by calling, 402-844-2080, by emailing Brandon Gascoigne at , or stop into their office located at 110 N. 4th Street, Norfolk, NE 68701.
