REO Rehab Program
REO or Real-Estate Owned properties are generally acquired as a result of a foreclosure. Revitalize CDC rehabs the property making them energy-efficient, safe and healthy and then makes the home available for purchase to a low-income and/or first-time homebuyer. The family is required to complete first-time homebuyer education and counseling classes.
JoinedForces Military Veterans Services Revitalize CDC focuses on home repair project work for military veterans in need. The focus is making their homes safe, healthy and energy-efficient. In addition the program refers veterans to other types of support services.
