Apache Junction is inviting residents to apply for housing rehabilitation funds, which provide homeowners deferred payment loans of up to $50,000 for certain kinds of repairs. Residents can apply for the loan for heating, air conditioning, plumbing, roofs, ADA accessibility, code violations and health/safety issues. The funding is available for owner-occupied single-family dwellings. To qualify, homeowners must have lived at the location for at least one year and be a full-time city resident. Also, residents must be at least 62, or have a disability, or have children under 18 at home.
The funding is provided by the Arizona Department of Housing. Applicants' information is kept confidential. Funds are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, call (480) 474-2635 or go to www.ajcity.net/rehab.
