The Town of Davidson has a long-standing core value regarding affordable housing in the community. Over time, the town has implemented various strategies working towards this goal, and one of them has been a critical home repair program.
This Comprehensive Housing Affordability Program (CHAP) is a way to assist homeowners to remain in their affordable homes while allowing the town to preserve its affordable housing stock and some of our older neighborhoods.
The Town of Davidson 2022 Affordable Housing Needs Assessment includes a recommendation, under “explore ways to utilize and maximize existing inventory,” to pursue critical home repairs and it references the “pilot program” which is CHAP.
The Needs Assessment also includes a recommendation to “implement a rental subsidy program targeting existing rental and investment properties.”
