Home Owners

NCS blends funds from Federal, State and Private Funding Sources to offer comprehensive housing
rehabilitation assistance for Owner-Occupants who live in Single Family Housing. We partner with
several agencies including the City of Rochester to attract as much funding as possible to our region.

Every grant subsidy is unique and comes with it’s own set of qualifications and regulations. All grant
programs are income qualified, and often the household income must be lower than 50% or 90% of
the Area Median Income (AMI). Grant subsidies cover only Health, Safety and Environmental hazards
and cannot be used for cosmetic renovations. All grants have an occupancy agreement between 3-10
years during which the homeowner must live in their home.
