Self-Help Rehab/Acquisition and Owner Occupied Program

(for rural areas outside of Longview/Kelso – USDA Rural Development funded)

Qualified Borrowers are now able to purchase a home in need of repairs and fix it up with technical assistance from CAP Self-Help staff.

Qualified Home Owners can apply for a 1% interest loan for up to $20,000 to make repairs on their home.  Qualified home owners 62 years or older could receive a $7,500 grant to make repairs

  • Each borrower is required to work a minimum of 50 hours, on the home, during the rehab process.
  • Programs are available in Clark, Cowlitz, Lewis and Wahkiakum counties.
  • A credit report is required which we can run through our office (there is a charge for the report)

Key Advantages of the Program

  • 100% Financing
  • Equity in your home, when you move in
  • Step-by-step Construction Supervision
  • LOW UTILITY COSTS because homes are built to NW Washington Energy Star Code requirements.



For information and an application, call 360-425-3430 ext. 222 or 1-800-893-8311 ext. 220, and ask for Self-Help Housing.
