Gaston County NC Neighborhood Revitalization Program

Gaston County will take applications from owner-occupants for housing repair assistance under the County’s proposed  2019 Community Development Block Grant—Neighborhood Revitalization Program. The application period begins on May 6th, 2019 and continues through May 29th, 2019.

The assistance will be in the form of a zero percent diminishing loan, which may be used to rehabilitate single family, detached, substandard site-built homes to meet the required standards set by HUD and the Minimum Housing Code.   Mobile homes and multi-family dwellings are not eligible.  This is NOT a home purchase program.

Eligibility       

  • Owner-occupied homes only
  • Dwelling must be qualified as moderately deteriorated
  • Dwelling must be located in Gaston County and may be in any municipality except inside Gastonia
  • All county taxes must be paid up to date
  • Household must meet program income requirements

In order to be eligible for assistance your household income (from all sources) must not exceed the levels shown below:

Persons in Household       Annual Income Limit     
1  $27,650
 $31,600
 $35,550
 $39,500
 $42,700
 $45,850
 $49,000

To begin the pre-application process, contact the Gaston County Grants Department at (704) 866-3078 and leave your name and phone number.  Pre-applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis; however, priority for assistance will be given based on income and special needs targeting elderly, disabled, large families, and single-parent households. Pre-applications will be accepted through May 29th, 2019.
