Home Rehab

ICAP delivers a repair and accessibility modification program for the homes of eligible persons and families. The HOME Rehabilitation program is funded by South Dakota Housing Development Authority (SDHDA) with HOME program funds allocated to the state by HUD. These HOME funds are renewed throughout the service area except the City of Sioux Falls and are made available to eligible persons/families on a zero-interest, five-year decreasing balance loan, as long as the homeowner remains eligible for the program. HOME funds can be used for accessibility modifications for persons with disabilities, in addition to making necessary repairs for health, safety and code compliance. 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. In accordance with Federal law and U.S. Department of Agriculture policy, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. (Not all prohibited bases apply to all programs). To file a complaint of discrimination, write USDA, Director, Office of Civil Rights, 1400 Independence Avenue, S.W., Washington, DC 20250-9410, or call (800) 795-3272 (voice), or (202) 720-6382 (TDD).
