Home Improvement Program
The City of Chino is committed to enhancing the quality of life for residents by offering assistance in the form of grants and low-interest deferred loans to enable low and moderate income homeowners to complete needed repairs to their homes. Home improvement projects help preserve and beautify neighborhoods while also promoting continued pride in the community.
The City of Chino is currently accepting applications for home improvement loans and grants. The Home Improvement Loan Program is designed for homeowners that need a substantial amount of work completed and whom plan to remain in their homes long-term. Eligible homeowners benefit by low interest, deferred loans for repairs they may otherwise not have been able to complete. Grant funds are available for eligible homeowners in need of minor repairs to correct code violations and/or health and safety concerns. Funding restrictions and limitations apply to both programs. A City representative will help determine which program best suits the individual needs of your household.
The City of Chino has also partnered with Neighborhood Partnership Housing Services (NPHS), funded by HUD through Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, to assist qualified senior households 62 and older, or homeowners with permanent mobility disabilities to repair health and safety concerns with a grant of up to $2,500.

Homebuyer Assistance Program
The City of Chino does not have it's own Homebuyer Assistance Program however, we understand it has become increasingly difficult for first-time homebuyers to purchase a single-family home, townhouse or condominium in Chino. In an effort to support homeownership in Chino, some government agencies and private organizations are offering homebuyer assistance programs.
Generally, these programs assist homebuyers in one of two ways. Some programs provide 100% financing and/or assistance with closing costs, which greatly reduces the amount of up-front cash needed to purchase a home. Others provide secondary financing, which effectively increases the buyer’s chances of qualifying for a home loan by eliminating the need for the buyer to bear the on-going cost of maintaining mortgage insurance.
