Housing Programs

Housing programs include the HOME Rehabilitation Program, Homeownership Acquisition and Rehabilitation Program (HARP), and Comprehensive Housing Counseling.

This enables the families to have a healthy, safe and secure living environment. Areas of rehabilitation may include electrical, plumbing, and heating.

The Homeownership Acquisition and Rehabilitation Program (HARP) is designed to assist low-income households with stable income and credit achieve their goal of homeownership. It is a cooperative program between the ND Housing Finance Agency and the ND Community Action Agencies. The goals are to increase homeownership opportunities for low-income households, provide education and counseling to prepare them for homeownership and improve neighborhoods by rehabilitating distressed properties.

Comprehensive Housing Counseling provides housing counseling services to homeowners, homebuyers, and renters. It assists individuals and families in improving housing conditions and meeting responsibilities of home-ownership and tenancy. Housing needs are achieved through providing general information, advice, and assistance in obtaining and maintaining adequate housing.
