Neighborhood Housing Rehabilitation Program (NHRP)
The program is designed to offer financial assistance to owner-occupied residents of Prince William County and the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park to correct health and safety issues as well as to increase energy efficiency within their properties.  The County, as an Urban Entitlement, receives Community Development Block (CDBG) funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to finance this program.  Households with incomes at or below 50 percent of area median income will receive priority for assistance.
Purpose of Program
The purpose of the Neighborhood Housing Rehabilitation Program is to preserve and improve owner occupied properties and to bring properties up to applicable building codes and standards.  Assistance provided should accomplish the following: correct exterior and interior deficiencies; make accessibility modifications; correct health and safety violations; improve weatherization and energy conservation; and correct lead-based paint violations.  General improvements are also eligible under this program.  General improvements include alterations, kitchen, bathroom, accessibility modifications, carpeting, fencing and landscaping.
Eligible Applicants
Gross household income must at or below 80 percent of the Washington, D.C. MSA median income, adjusted for family size.
Loan Terms
The amount of assistance provided for rehabilitation will be secured by a deferred deed of trust on the property minus a grant of $25,000.  The trust will not be due and payable until the property ceases to be the principal residence, or is sold, or the borrower fails or neglects to pay the taxes, assessments, or premiums for hazard, flood (if required) or mortgage insurance, or terms of the deed of trust are violated.
