Residential Rehabilitation Loan Program

The Residential Rehab Loan Program utilizes CDBG revolving funds to provide low-interest loans to income-eligible owner-occupant homeowners who want to repair or improve their home. The loan can be used to repair or correct hazardous conditions or safety issues, such as, leaky roof, faulty electrical wiring, and plumbing problems. Other eligible uses include installation of solar water heater or photovoltaic systems, to promote energy savings. The loan can also be used to accommodate special needs of a disabled person in the household.

Home Purchase Program

The Home Purchase Program utilizes CDBG grant funds and revolving funds to purchase homes on Kauai—and rehabilitate if necessary, in order to resell to eligible, first-time low- to moderate- income families by way of the County’s 90-year Ground Lease Program.
