Self-Help Housing Rehab

In many of the smaller cities and rural areas that ICAP serves, residents have identified housing rehabilitation as a need. Oftentimes homeowners either cannot find a contractor to work on their home or they cannot afford the cost of materials and labor. ICAP staff, in conjunction with the US department of Agriculture's Rural Development agency, have created a Self-Help Housing Rehabilitation program to assist homeowners with their home repairs. Eligible participants work with program staff to identify their specific needs and to create a work plan. Funding sources best suited to the homeowners are identified and used to fund materials and any contractors requiring licensing. A Self Help Rehabilitation Representative provides hands-on instruction and assistance to the homeowner and helpers so that they can provide all or part of the labor required. The program is available throughout the service area except the cities of Sioux Falls and Watertown. Interested parties can contact the Housing Program Director for more information.
