Single Family Rehabilitation Program

To assist in preserving and upgrading Fairfield's housing stock, the Office of Community and Economic Development has developed a Singe Family Rehabilitation Program, with funding provided by the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). This program is intended to provide income-eligible Fairfield homeowners with financial assistance, in the form of special, no-interest loans to perform needed improvements and repairs to their place of residence.

What Kind of Assistance Is Available?

The Town will provide up to sixty percent (60%) of the total project cost based on the lowest three valid quotes, up to a maximum of $15,000 per qualified applicant, per year. Financial assistance is provided in the form of a special, no-interest loan that is repaid when the owner sells and/or transfers the property, refinances, or passes away. The loan amount will be recorded as a lien on the property. 

Who Is Eligible To Apply?

Fairfield homeowners must meet income guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in order to participate in this federally funded program. The current income guidelines are listed below.

Applicants are advised to contact the Program Administrator to determine whether a proposed project is eligible for funding assistance under this program.
