Housing Department Rehabilitation Program

WHAT IS THE HOUSING REHABILITATION PROGRAM?

The Pinal County Division of Housing will assist qualified residents in repairing and rehabilitating their homes using money provided by state and federal grants.

The goal of the program is to benefit very low, low and moderate families living within Pinal County but not within the incorporated limits of a city or town. This program will provide safe, affordable housing for income qualified families and improve the quality and appearance of the overall housing stock in Pinal County and the overall environment within Pinal county.

This is an equal opportunity program and will assist qualified low/moderate income persons. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, disability or familial status. Pinal County encourages participation by women & minorities in this project.

IF YOU QUALIFY AND ARE SELECTED

Following verification of the information on your application and title ownership, your home will be inspected by a housing rehabilitation specialist.

Once inspection is competed and a work write-up is done, bid packages will be given to you to contact at least three (3) contractors to bid on your home for the rehabilitation work.

A forgivable, non-interest bearing loan (Deferred Payment Loan {DPL}) will be issued to you as a qualified applicant. The loan is secured by a lien and promissory note that will be forgiven at a rate of 10% per year for a period of between ten and 15 years as long as the dwelling is occupied by the owner.

The unforgiven balance of the loan shall become due and payable upon the sale, exchange, or transfer of the property.

The loan amount will be based on the cost to complete the necessary rehabilitation work on your home.
