HOME Investment Partnership Program Funds
The homeowner rehabilitation program provides assistance to low-income homeowners who lack the resources to make necessary repairs to their homes. Assistance can be used for reimbursement of costs for rehabilitation, which includes the following: applicable codes, standards or ordinances, rehabilitation standards, essential improvements, energy-related improvements, lead-based paint hazard reduction, accessibility for disabled persons, repair or replacement of major housing systems, incipient repairs and general property improvements of a non-luxury nature, site improvements and utility connections.
MFA relies on nonprofits, housing authorities, and local governments to administer the homeowner rehabilitation program. Funds are awarded through an RFP/Application process and proposals are reviewed and evaluated by several committees, and approved by the MFA Board. MFA has also reserved funds for the Reservation Rehabilitation program to provide loans to homeowners on a house-by-house, first-come, first-served basis.
Sub-recipients of homeowner rehab funds, design programs to fit the needs of their individual jurisdictions. The role of sub-recipients is to administer the rehabilitation program from initial marketing activities to completion of the rehabilitation and securing loans. Agencies are responsible for publicizing and taking applications, qualifying applicants, determining income eligibility, determining ownership, guaranteeing that work is properly inspected and completed, insuring that properties meet all code, construction standards and HQS regulations, and adherence to all HOME funding and Lead Based Paint Requirements. Agencies are also responsible for securing due on sale, refinance or transfer or amortizing, low interest loans for participants. The program is available statewide excluding the cities of Albuquerque and Las Cruces. Properties located on Native American Trust Lands are eligible to apply for the Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Program.
