Owner-Occupied Rehab Program

The Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Program (OOR) is funded through the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (IOCRA) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. The funding is available to local units of government and not-for-profits on a competitive basis, annually. Individuals alone are not eligible. If approved, funding of up to $25,000 per home may be used to improve the conditions of the home of a qualified beneficiary.

SIRPC works with the communities in developing the application for the program. If funded, we will oversee the project to completion.
