Neighborhood Finance Corporation (NFC) is proud to partner with Polk County and the Windsor Heights-Urbandale Sanitary Sewer District to provide a financing option for Windsor Heights residents who need to replace or repair their sewer line as part of the Save Our Sewers (S.O.S.) program.
A forgivable loan up to $10,000 for sewer repair/replacement is available to be used with NFC repayable financing. The portion of the project that will be forgiven will be 25%, 33% or 50%, up to $10,000, depending on the household income
Bids for sewer repair or replacement to be obtained by home owner
All plumbers must be approved by the City of Windsor Heights to do repair/replacements within Windsor Heights
The forgivable renovation funds are five year forgivable mortgages with 20% forgiven each year of owner-occupancy. You must occupy the home for five years to receive the full forgiveness
Homeowner must maintain 5% equity in the property
Competitive Fixed Interest Rate
Property repairs and improvements cannot be completed prior to closing on the NFC loan. NFC will not reimburse for work completed prior to the NFC loan closing
Applications can be emailed to Joni Norman. If using email, please send by secure email. If homeowners want to meet with a loan originator they can call 515-246-0010 to schedule an appointment.
Our program is intended to improve neighborhoods and increase owner occupied home ownership; therefore, you must occupy the property. Borrowers should have owned the home for 1-year before receiving NFC financing. This may be waived it there are emergency repairs that need to be made during the first year.
