FCHA has been awarded $400,000 in grant funds to provide housing rehabilitation in its local community in which it serves. The funding was provided by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) through a federal grant program the Community HOME Investment Program (CHIP). The CHIP program is designed to provide safe, decent, and affordable housing in Georgia by granting funds to city and county governments, public housing authorities, and nonprofits to 1.) rehabilitate owner-occupied homes, and 2.) build and renovate affordable single-family homes for sale to eligible homebuyer.
To qualify for participation in our owner-occupied housing rehabilitation program homeowners must be at least 62 years of age, own their home and be a low-to-moderate income household that is at or below 50% area median income (AMI) and live within the Newton County service area.
