Owner occupied rehab funds available PDF Print E-mail

Perkins County, along with Southwest Nebraska Community Betterment Corporation, is leading a cooperative effort to provide some needed renovation to homes within the incorporated communities of Perkins County using funding provided by the Nebraska Department of Economic Development.
The housing program, referred to as Owner Occupied Rehab, provides families living at a moderate to low income level who own their homes, is a financial resource to complete renovation work such as new windows, doors, siding, roofing, heating systems and insulation. This program is a “forgivable 0 percent loan” with no repayment necessary as long as the families maintain the property as their primary residence over the next 10 years. To income qualify each family will need to be at or below the 80 percent AMI income level guidelines set by HUD.
Families can qualify for assistance through Perkins County and SWNCBC allowing extensive renovation projects to be accomplished on their homes. At this time, funding is available for three families to receive up to $24,500 in housing assistance.
Applications are currently being accepted for this rehabilitation program. For more information, questions or an application, contact the Perkins County Clerk’s Office at (308)352-4643 or Southwest Nebraska Community Betterment Corporation at (308)352-4338.
