Housing Resources received a grant from the U.S. Dept. of Ag Rural Development for $946,240 that is effective through Sept. 30, 2011, with a requirement to build 40 homes in Mesa County within the two-year period.
The program gives families the means to afford their own homes by performing a portion of the labor. Families who participate contribute a minimum of 30 hours of labor/week for approx. 6-8 months under qualified supervision. The families' "sweat equity" eliminates the down payment on the home and allows them to possibly qualify for a reduced mortgage rate.
Do you want to build your own home but think you can't afford it?
Use your labor building the home as the downpayment.
Do you own or rent your own home and need help getting it ready for winter?
Weatherizing a home can save you money and help keep your home cool in the Summer and warm in the Winer.
