CORNING- Applications are now available for Community Housing Improvement Program’s subdivision Stonefox Phases two and three. Stonefox Phase 1 is currently under development. The 54 available lots are located off Solano and Stonefox Streets on Clear Creek Street.
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, which takes about a year. All homes must be finished before anyone moves in.
The income limit is $47,900 for 1-4 person households and $63,250 for 5-8 person households. Visit www.chiphousing.org to download an application or call 530-891-6931.
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, Rural Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) and NeighborWorks America. To apply or for more information, visit www.chiphousing.org/homeownership , email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 530-891-6931.
