Services: The Community Housing Investment Corporations mission is to create and support the renovation and construction of affordable housing, the removal of blighting conditions, and the redevelopment of residential neighborhoods in Council Bluffs by undertaking actions that provide housing opportunities principally for low and moderat income households and reduce the burdens of government. Chic Operates two major programs, Blight Removal and Down Payment assistance. The Blight Removal program identifies and acquires blighted properties, renovates or removes blighted structures, corrects site deficiencies and develops (6-10) sites annually for new affordable housing.
The Down Payment Assistance Program strengthens the community in three ways. The pre-purchase training and qualification process helps buyers become successful home owners. The low to moderate income households are helped to attain personal financial security through home ownership and earn their benefits through responsible financial management. The new homes and the stability of home ownership have a positive impact on the value and social conditions of the neighborhoods in which they are located.
