The Nebraska Housing Developers Association is now offering assistance to certain homeowners to replace inefficient or nonfunctioning heating and air conditioning units. The All Seasons Affordability Program is an owner-occupied rehabilitation program designed to replace older HVAC units to conserve energy and make home utility costs more affordable for Nebraska residents.
An average of $9,000 per household will be available in assistance. Those eligible must be 55 and older, demonstrate special needs, or live in units with at least three bedrooms. Applicants must also live in Nebraska and earn less than 80 percent of the area median income as defined by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Topeka.
Homeowners without HVAC systems or systems that do not currently function will be given priority. The program is 100 percent grant funded and will not have to be paid back.
With utility costs skyrocketing over the long winter, the importance of functioning, efficient HVAC systems has become a key aspect of home affordability for Nebraska homeowners. NHDA is thrilled to offer this new program to our members and those they serve.
More information about the program can be found on our website. Those interested can also contact Amber Marker with NHDA at firstname.lastname@example.org or (402) 435-0315 ex. 2 to learn more about the program and how to apply.
