Home Matters 2.0: Veterans Park

Pilot project

This project is now closed and we are not taking further applications.

The Northfield Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) and Three Rivers Community Action have assembled financing for the purpose of making home improvements that will stabilize the neighborhood, increase energy efficiency, address health and safety concerns and/or add alternative energy components. The program will provide qualified applicants with grant funds matching the homeowner’s contribution $2 for every $1 spent by the homeowner, with a total maximum grant to the homeowner of $10,000. No-interest loan funds of up to $5,000 are also available through the program and can be counted as borrower’s contribution. Funds are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis to homeowners who meet ALL program guidelines.

Does my home qualify for this program?

Homes must be located within the target Veteran’s Park neighborhood in Northfield. The target neighborhood is the 10 block area south of downtown Northfield. The neighborhood is bordered by Highway 3 in the West, Water Street in the East, 8th Street in the North and Woodley Street in the South. If your house is yellow on the map below, you may be eligible for this program!


What does "qualified household" mean?

Households are eligible for funds if their current gross annual income is less than 80% of the Rice County median income. Incomes from all adults in the home must be verified and documentation must be provided at the time of application. Income from ALL sources must be documented, including salary, commissions, bonuses, tips, part-time employment, interest, dividends, annuities, pensions, royalties, VA compensation, public assistance, social security, unemployment, rental income, business income, alimony, child support, estate or trust income, and seasonal income.
