  • What are the terms of the Conditional Grant? The Conditional Grant requires the beneficiary to live in the home and maintain it as an affordable unit for a period of not less than 10 years (the Affordability Period). The amount of the City Lien due at the end of the Affordability Period will reflect an annual reduction of 1/10th of the City’s total investment. In other words, the debt is forgiven, if you live in the house for 10 years continuously.
  • Do I have to make payments on the Conditional Grant?  No, the Conditional Grant is zero percent interest, and the payments are deferred during the time you live in the home. 
  • How do I know if my property is eligible? You must live in a designated Low- to Moderate-Income Area.  Visit the Neighborhood Pride Program Map and type in your property address.
  • Is there a limit on the amount of financial assistance I can receive? Yes, the maximum amount is $40,000.00.
  • What if I sell my home or no longer occupy it as my primary residence prior to the end of the Affordability Period? The City Lien shall be immediately due and payable, with the amount due reflecting an annual reduction of 1/10th of the City’s total investment beginning on the date the Conditional Grant was issued and ending on the date the status of the property changed.
  • What if I transfer the property to a relative prior to the end of the Affordability Period?  If the person receiving the property other than through sale, such as inheritance, qualifies income-wise, they may apply to assume the City Lien.
  • How do I apply for the program? Staff is processing an existing list of residents seeking housing rehabilitation assistance. This page will be updated when new applications are being accepted.
