Housing Repair Grants Available

LA PAZ COUNTY IS NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR HOUSING REPAIR

La Paz County is accepting applications for Housing Rehabilitation funded through a grant from the Arizona Department of Housing.

The goal of this program is to alleviate health and safety issues in the home, correct code violations, weatherization / energy efficiency, and accommodations for accessibility. The work may contain all or some of the components. Programs may change based on funding or priorities.

Applicants must meet one of the following priorities: Disabled, Elderly, Families with Children under the age of 18, and Veterans.

This program comes with income limits, limits of assistance, and lien requirements. You must live in La Paz County or within the unincorporated areas of La Paz County.

Maximum amount of assistance may be up to $50,000 based on need. This assistance is in the form of a deferred forgivable loan at 0% interest, with a 5/10/15 year recapture period. A lien is placed on the property until such time period is over. The loan is forgiven if the owner does not sell the property within the 5/10/15 year lien period. All work will be done by licensed contractors, procured by La Paz County. No funds are given to the home owner directly.
