Community Housing Improvement Program (CHIP)
Community Housing Improvement Program (CHIP)

The CHIP grant can provide assistance to low-moderate income (LMI) individuals within Clark County (but outside of the City of Springfield) who have a combined total household income of less than 80% of the area median income (AMI). Assistance is provided by way of one of the following activities:

  • Private Owner Rehabilitation ($227,000 total activity budget) - Assists homeowners by correcting multiple disrepair issues - bringing the home up to the OHCP Residential Rehabilitation Standard (RRS). Work may not exceed maximum per-instance budget. Note: This activity requires that a 15-year, no payment, forgivable mortgage be placed on the property.
  • Home Repair ($125,000 total activity budget) - Assists homeowners by correcting one or two significant problems within the home. These corrections will bring the individual systems up to RRS. Work may not exceed maximum per-instance budget. This activity is treated as a grant to the homeowner.

Clark County Community Development (CCCD) is currently in the setup process for this grant, but is accepting application requests. Once the State of Ohio releases grant funds, requesters will be contacted, applications posted and distributed, and qualification will begin. Please contact CCCD with questions.
