Community Housing Impact and Preservation (CHIP)

The Community Housing Impact and Preservation Program (CHIP) is designed to provide financial assistance to income-eligible homeowners whose property is in need of repair. The Department of Development has partnered with the City of Xenia which allows the County to serve residents in the City of Xenia. The grant will be used for owner-occupied property rehabilitation and home repair within the county (excluding the City of Fairborn). These repairs (for example – new furnace, electric upgrades) are eligible for a forgivable deferred loan and funds are now available. The table below highlights the maximum income limits allowable for your household to qualify.
