Cumberland County Housing Rehabilitation Program

Funding has been provided to help property owners maintain their homes through the Cumberland County Housing Rehabilitation Program. This program pays for home repairs, focusing on those to correct code deficiencies, in residences of qualified homeowners. Eligible work items include updating electrical wiring, heating systems, roof repair or replacement, insulation, doors, windows, siding, interior and exterior painting, chimneys, spouting, foundation repairs, kitchens, bathrooms, etc. Assistance is in the form of an interest-free deferred loan, and a mortgage is recorded as a lien against the property. A maximum of $17,500 in assistance can be provided per eligible home and the property owners.

If the home cannot be brought up to code with the $17,500 maximum deferred loan, the homeowner is required to provide the additional funds needed in order to complete the job. If the homeowner cannot provide the additional funds, no loan will be given. An application process must be completed before a loan approval is given.

To be eligible for the program, the owner of the property must have resided in the property for at least the last six months. Mobile homes are permissible as long as the resident owns the land on which the mobile home is placed. The homeowner must be current on all property taxes and municipal utilities. Homeowners insurance must be in place.
