Community Home Improvement Program (CHIP)

This program offers low-interest loans for low-to-moderate income homeowners for the improvement, repair or addition to the borrower’s present single family home. Interest rates are very attractive and dependent on the applicant’s income. CHIP loans have level monthly payments.

If you do not qualify for a CHIP loan, other home improvement loans may be available. For more information, contact Amanda or visit the SDHDA website.

United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development (RD) Loan Guarantee Program

Under the terms of the USDA Rural Development Loan Guarantee program, an individual or family may borrow up to 100 percent of the appraised value of the home, which may eliminate the need for cash for a down payment or closing costs. A common barrier to owning a home for many people is the lack of funds to make a down payment. The availability of the loan guarantees makes the reality of owning a home available to a much larger percentage of Americans.

Veterans Affairs (VA) Loan Guarantee Program

VA’s guaranty allows the bank to offer veterans loans with more favorable loan terms. The amount of guaranty depends on the loan amount and whether the veteran used some entitlement previously. The amount of the guaranty also depends on the appraised value of the property. The local VA office can provide more details on guaranty and entitlement amounts.

HELOC (Home Equity Line of Credit)

Take advantage of the cash value of your home and decide what you want to do with the money.  By using the equity of your home, you can qualify for a line of credit at an interest rate that may be lower than a personal loan.  Borrow what you need when you need it and pay it down with the minimum monthly payments and larger payment when you can.  Plus, you may be allowed to deduct the interest on your taxes because the debt is secured by your home.  You should consult a tax adviser regarding the deductibility of your interest.
