Los Alamos County staff is currently developing a rehab program that could assist low-income homeowners to modernize systems, replace windows, lower energy costs, modify for handicapped needs and provide emergency repairs.
Council has approved funding for such a program in the last two budgets, which is currently at $400,000. Staff is preparing a Request for Qualifications to identify potential private partners for the program, which is due to go out in the first quarter of 2014.
The program is likely to involve multiple entities, due to its complexity. It will require taking applications, underwriting and loan approval, construction, quality control and oversight of compliance components.
