Rental Property Rehabilitation Program

Rock County has funding available to provide property owners with access to funds to rehabilitate rental units that are rented to low income households.  Loans made to landlords provide the necessary funds to bring rental units up to local codes for safety. Several inspections are completed to determine what work needs to be done to bring the unit up to County standards. Property owners must agree to make the improved units available for rent to low/moderate income households during the affordability period and rents must remain affordable at or below Fair Market Rent rates set by HUD.
