Community Housing Impact and Preservation Program

Community Housing Impact and Preservation Program (CHIP)

The Hancock County Community Housing Impact and Preservation program, in partnership with the City of Findlay, provides no-cost home repairs or rehabilitation for income-eligible homeowners who reside in Hancock County. Repairs may include plumbing, electrical, roof, furnace, ADA modifications, water heater, insulation, and other needs.

Hancock County is able to offer this opportunity with funding from the Ohio Development Service Agency, Office of Community Development (OCD).


Home Repair Program & Home Rehabilitation Program

The Home Repair Program provides no-cost upgrades and fixes for qualified homeowners. This grant-funded program requires no repayment by the homeowner.

The Home Rehabilitation Program offers more extensive repairs and upgrades for homes. This program is partially funded through a grant that is forgivable over a five-year period and a no-interest deferred loan that is repayable at the time of sale, transfer of the title, or change in occupancy.
