Marion County has received Community Housing Improvement Program (CHIP) funding through the Ohio Department of Development.  These funds are used to improve the housing stock in Marion County for low to moderate income citizens.  The County has contracted with Ohio Regional Development Corporation (ORDC) to administer its program.

CHIP Information

Owner Rehabilitation:  The purpose of this program is to rehabilitate single family units, which are owned and occupied by low- and moderate- income households.  Eligible items for this program include: installation and/or repairs to foundations, roofs, gutters, electrical upgrades, plumbing, furnaces, hot water heaters, insulation, windows, doors, accessibility improvements and lead-based paint abatement.

Home Repair is an activity to help preserve housing by providing limited assistance to correct specific problems that adversely affect the occupant health or safety and/or structural integrity.  Examples of this activity would be to address one or two systems of a house: a roof, a furnace, hot water tank, or an accessibility ramp.
