Yes, Anoka County has a housing repair / rehabilitation programs available to income-qualified homeowners. Rehabilitation is intended to improve housing quality standards – it will not pay for additions or luxury-type improvements. If approved and work is completed, a lien is placed against the property in the amount of costs incurred. The lien is a deferred loan on which no interest accrues and it is considered a “special mortgage” by the state. The county currently administers two state (Minnesota Housing Finance Agency - MHFA) rehab programs: -“Emergency and/or Accessibility” rehab program for income- qualified homeowners AND -“Rehab Loan” program for very low income homebuyers Anoka County funds its own housing rehab program for low/fixed income homeowners. As with the state’s program, completed rehab work will result in a deferred, no interest loan/lien being placed against the homeowner’s property.
