Chattanooga Neighborhood Enterprise funding rehab efforts

Chattanooga Neighborhood Enterprise (CNE) is offering home improvement loans to Chattanooga homeowners who qualify.  These low interest loans can be used for roof repairs, interior and exterior repairs, foundation repairs, HVAC repair or replacement, and electrical and plumbing repairs. A homeownership rehab project might also include lead abatement.

“By helping owners rehab and repair their homes, CNE achieves a number of community development goals, including helping owners improve their homes’ energy efficiency,” said Martina Guilfoil, president and CEO of CNE.

To qualify, homeowners must live in the City of Chattanooga; the home must be their primary residence; and applicants are subject to income limitations.

“CNE is committed to helping lower income owners realize sustainable homeownership,” Homeownership Center Manager Carolyn Burke added. “We support sustainability by helping existing owners rehab and repair their homes. Our efforts also involve helping buyers understand the mortgage process, which includes shopping for the right mortgage, working with a home inspector to be as aware as possible about potential problems, and offering guidance on choosing a qualified contractor to avoid home improvement scams.”

For more information, contact CNE at (423) 756-6201 or info@cneinc.org.
