HOUSING REHABILITATION PROGRAM 

The Town of Cheshire has received funding for a Housing Rehabilitation Program on a first come, first serve basis to qualified low and moderate income residents.  Funds for this program come in the form of 0% interest loans from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The focus of the program is on code compliance and safety concerns rather than home remodeling. The program objectives are:

  • To prevent hazardous health conditions and code violations
  • To prevent blighting influences and deterioration of property and neighborhoods
  • To improve the quality of the municipality’s housing stock for low-moderate income persons
  • To provide financial assistance to low-moderate income property owners for housing rehabilitation activities
  • To provide financial assistance to low-moderate income property owners for the purpose of septic repair or replacement, sewer and water hookups
  • To stimulate public and private investment within the target area neighborhoods

Homeowners/landlords who believe they may qualify for assistance are encouraged to apply. Applications and additional information are available through the following links:
