The County will be accepting pre-applications for the Homeowner Rehabilitation/Reconstruction Program for residents of Seminole County beginning April 3, 2023. The Homeowner Rehabilitation Program is intended to meet the housing rehabilitation needs of income-eligible households and to preserve affordable housing in Seminole County. The program provides funding in the form of an interest-free, deferred payment loan to qualified homeowners who need more extensive repairs than what can be provided under the Minor Home Repair Program. In cases where the structure has deteriorated to a point of being unsafe and no longer habitable, and rehabilitation would not bring the dwelling to property standards, the existing home may be demolished and a new home constructed under this program.
Pre-applications are available between the hours of 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Seminole County Community Development Office at 520 West Lake Mary Boulevard, Suite 100; Sanford, Florida 32773, and on the Seminole County webpage http://www.seminolecountyfl.gov/departments-services/community-services/. Original, completed pre-applications will be accepted Monday through Friday from 8am to 4pm at the Seminole County Community Services Office. Emailed, faxed and/or copies submitted will not be accepted. Only twenty (20) original and complete pre-applications will be accepted and placed on the waiting list based on time/date stamp from housing office. The pre-applications will be used to establish a waiting list for the Rehabilitation & Reconstruction Program based on first come, first accepted basis. For questions, please contact us at (407) 665-2300.
