A federal grant will help lower-income Hancock County residents with home repairs. The Community Housing Impact and Preservation, or CHIP program, has awarded $850,000 to the county. The money is set aside to fund 20 home repair and 11 home rehabilitation projects. This can include things like electrical systems, plumbing systems, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Home repairs are free to eligible homeowners. Home rehabilitations require a 20 percent, no-interest deferred loan for homeowners. The grant covers the rest of the repairs.
