Posted by Cristina Calva | November 18, 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

November 18, 2020

BIGGS- Applications are now available for Community Housing Improvement Program's subdivision North Biggs Estates Phase 2. The 10 available lots are located on J Street between 2nd and 4th Streets in Biggs CA. CHIP will prioritize applicants who were displaced by the Camp Fire. To be eligible for the priority consideration, your application must be received by December 31, 2020.

Under CHIP's self-help program, families build their homes in groups of five to nine under the supervision of CHIP's construction staff. Each household dedicates at least 30 hours per week in labor towards building their new homes and help each other during the process. All homes must be finished before anyone moves in.

For current income limits visit our website at www.chiphousing.org . House plans include 3, 4 and 5 bedroom models with no down payment, affordable monthly payments, and low fixed interest rates. USDA Rural Development provides funding assistance for these programs. Builders must make at or below 80 percent median income for the county in which they build, have decent credit, and earn enough income to make monthly payments on the loan.

This development is made possible with the following partners: USDA Rural Development, HOME, CalHome, and Predevelopment Loan Program, all with the State of California Housing and Community Development (HCD) and NeighborWorks America. To apply or for more information, visit www.chiphousing.org or email chipgeneral@chiphousing.org or call 530-891-6931.

Since 1973, CHIP has developed more than 2,600 affordable housing units in its seven-county service area, which includes Butte, Glenn, Tehama, Colusa, Shasta, Yuba, and Sutter Counties. CHIP also partners with other agencies to provide on-site resident social and educational services to those who live in CHIP's rental housing. CHIP is a network member of NeighborWorks America.
