CADA Received Funding for the 2017 Urgent Repair Program

Choanoke Area Development Association of NC, Inc. (CADA) has been approved to receive $200,000 in Urgent Repair Funding (URP 2017) from the North Carolina Housing Finance (NCHFA) to assist very low-income homeowners with special needs or with a fulltime household member(s) who have special needs in Bertie, Halifax, Hertford, Martin and Northampton Counties.

         Funds will benefit households with incomes below 50% of the area median income.  URP 2017 Funds are from the State appropriated North Carolina Housing Trust Fund.  Applications will be ranked by need on a county-by-county basis.  Applications with the highest scores in each county will be served first.

URP funds are provided in the form of a loan for the hard and soft costs used to repair/modify the house.  Homeownerswill receive an unsecured, deferred, interest-free loan, forgiven at a rate of $1,000 per year until the principal balance is zero.  Maximum URP assistance is $8,000.  CADA reserves the right to deny repairs to a house that are not cost effective or a wise investment of URP funds.

         CADA will take applications from October 2, 2017 – November 2, 2017.  Contact your local CADA office to schedule an appointment to apply.  Proof of ownership and income is required.  Those who have applied for URP Assistance in the past must update applications.  For a copy of the Assistance Policy, visit the CADA Website at www.nc-cada.org or contact your local county CADA Community Service Center to schedule an appointment to apply:
