Housing Assistance Rehabilitation Loan Program

The Housing Assistance Rehabilitation Loan Program provides up to $15,000, fully amortized loan up to 7 years with 3% interest rate to eligible SEIU employees to pay for repairs to correct conditions affecting health and safety and weatherization.

This web page contains the forms for the County of Sonoma/SEIU Local 1021 - Housing Assistance Rehabilitation Program.

Please print out and complete the forms listed below as application materials.  Sign all the forms where indicated.  You may return the material via the county courier system to SEIU Housing at the Community Development Commission, or in person at 1440 Guerneville Road, Santa Rosa, Ca if you prefer.

It is highly recommend that your first step be to thoroughly review the application forms and requirements of eligibility prior to submission. Part of the application process is to provide information on the intended scope of work and bid amount. Your second step should be to educate yourself on how to choose a licensed, bonded, and insured contractor. You must provide evidence of your contractor’s valid state contractor’s license, contractor’s bond and evidence of insurance consistent with the State Contractor’s License Board requirements with your application.

Please be advised that funds for this program are limited and time is of the essence in providing us with all the necessary documentation to expedite approval of your application. All loan applications will be processed and evaluated on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Please call the SEIU Housing Assistance message line at (707) 565-7549 if you have questions during your review and completion of the forms.
