Self Help Program

Purchase/Rehab – In this program, Participating families are approved for a mortgage through USDA Rural Development. The mortgage will then be used to purchase a house and necessary materials to rehab the house. It is anticipated that the amount of time needed to rehab the house will be approximately 120 hours. Threshold Housing Development will provide an experienced construction supervisor to instruct the homeowner in the skills needed to perform the work and to provide ongoing support and guidance. This program is available in Fayette, Greene and Fayette counties.

To participate in the program, families must first submit a Prequalification Application.  If it appears that the family qualifies, then a full Application can then be submitted. Both of these forms are downloadable by clicking on the name or at the Threshold Housing Development office in Uniontown.  These forms should be filled out and sent to Threshold Housing Development, 55 N. Beeson Ave., Uniontown, PA 15401.
