Essential Single-Family Rehabilitation Loan Pool

The North Carolina Housing Finance Agency makes Essential Single-Family Rehabilitation Loan Pool (ESFRLP) funds available to qualified organizations during each funding cycle to finance moderate home rehabilitation for low and moderate-income homeowners who are elderly or have special needs. The Agency serves 32-33 counties on a three-year rotating basis (pending the availability of HOME program funds).

If you are a nonprofit organization, local government or a regional council of government, you may be eligible to apply for the SFRLP during our funding cycle. Successful applicants are awarded a set-aside of $170,000 for home rehabilitation costs, with the potential of receiving additional funds on a first-come, first-served basis.
