The City of Walnut offers grants and loans to homeowners of single family detached dwellings through its Housing Rehabilitation Program. The program assists low to moderate income homeowners with funding for home improvements which preserve safe and sanitary housing, correct hazardous structural conditions, eliminate blight, correct code violations, and provide handicapped access.
The Housing Rehabilitation Program provides grants of up to $12,500. When coupled with a deferred loan (consistent with the program guidelines) of a minimum $5,000, grant(s) of up to $15,000 may be provided. Additionally, deferred loans at zero percent interest of minimum $5,000 up to a maximum of $30,000, to eligible low- to moderate- income residential owner-occupants living in Walnut, may also be provided as part of the program. The grants need not be repaid and are designed to assist with addressing Code items in addition to work requested by the owner. Applicant seeking a combination loan/grant, per the guidelines, may be eligible for an amount not to exceed $45,000. The loans are deferred with no interest until the property changes title or is refinanced. Funding is limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis.
Funding is provided by the Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. Participation in the Housing Rehabilitation Program is limited to applicants whose annual income does not exceed the Housing and Community Development and HUD established income limits. Applicants will be required to submit proof of income, a copy of a recent tax bill, proof of property insurance, and proof of identification.
