Community Housing Impact and Preservation (CHIP)

The CHIP program provides grants and loans to income-eligible homeowners living within the City of Piqua, Ohio, to repair housing conditions that pose a threat to the health and safety of the occupants or pose an ongoing threat to the structural integrity of the home. The program is designed to assist Low to Moderate Income families and individuals and federal funding is administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The State of Ohio annually receives a portion of CHIP funding from HUD and is administered by the Ohio Department of Development, Office of Community Development (ODOD, OCD).    

Improvements may include such items as: roofs, gutters and downspouts, windows and doors, electrical, plumbing, heating, insulation, foundations, handicapped accessibility bathroom upgrades, water heaters, handicap accessibility improvements, water and sewer tap-ins, lead-based paint hazard controls, etc. The City of Piqua is currently taking CHIP applicant names and placing them on a CHIP waiting list.  The CHIP applicant must own and reside in the home as the primary residence.
