North Carolina Housing Finance Agency's (NCHFA) Single Family Rehabilitation Program offers funding to local organizations with the goal of making a long-term positive impact on the state's stock of standard affordable housing by encouraging the comprehensive rehabilitation of existing, moderately deteriorated, single-family housing units owned and occupied by lower-income elderly or disabled homeowners (below 80% of the area median income).

NCHFA's Urgent Repair Program provides grants for emergency home repairs for elderly homeowners and other homeowners with special needs whose household incomes are below 50% of the median. The funds also may be used for accessibility modifications that enable homeowners to continue living in their homes after an injury or illness. Click here for more information.
