Community Housing Improvement Program (CHIP)

The State of Ohio CHIP Program provides grants to small cities that will help them to specifically provide housing assistance to qualified applicants. Those grants must be applied for by the municipality, and they are awarded on a competitive basis.

Xenia Grants
 In 2009, the City of Xenia received and distributed over $500,000 in CHIP funds to low-income apartment renters, and to homeowners to improve their homes.

In 2014 the City of Xenia entered into an agreement with Greene County to apply for and subsequently administer a new CHIP program. This grant was funded, and the county has been allocated nearly $600,000 in funds available for housing loans. The loans, some forgivable, are available to qualified homeowners in the City. 
Apply for Assistance
