Southern Hills works to meet to the needs of the communities we serve through:
** Our Home Improvement Program (HIP) that provides grants of up to $30,000 to income-eligible homeowners to make necessary repairs on their homes. Funds can be used for up to 60% of total project costs. Homeowners are responsible for the remaining 40% of the project costs. Homeowner funds can come from a gift, other grant programs, or a loan, including our Homeowner Rehab Loan (see below).
** Our First-Time Home buyer (FTHB) Program that provides grants of up to $30,000 to income-eligible buyers toward the purchase of their first home. The funds can be used to make necessary repairs on the home and to “buy down” the mortgage amount (note that funds cannot be used for down payment and closing costs). At least 51% of the total funds must be used for necessary repairs, with remaining funds used to reduce the mortgage to keep payments more affordable.
** Our Homeowner Rehab Loans that offer low interest, flexible loans that help income-eligible homeowners make needed repairs on their homes.
** Our housing counseling services that include individual counseling to help with budgeting, credit repair, preparing for homeownership, becoming a stronger homeowner, and tenant rights and responsibilities. Our education includes First-Time Homebuyer Classes offered online through eHome America. For 2016, we are adding Financial Literacy Workshops, Tenant Workshops, and Homeowner Workshops.
