Improvement Incentives (CHII)



CHII is a grant program run by SNA which provides homeowners and rental property owners with financial assistance for fix-up projects to improve the exterior quality, safety, appearance, and extend the life of their properties.

CHII Application Process


Check your property’s eligibility. Properties that previously benefitted from a grant are not eligible to benefit again unless a minimum waiting period of three years has elapsed. Properties that benefitted from a grant in 2014, 2015, or 2016 are not eligible to apply in 2017. If you aren’t sure about your property’s eligibility, please contact SNA Housing staff, or visit us at 615 Ellice Avenue.

Get your application. Homeowner Applications are available by clicking here and Rental Applications are available by clicking here. You may also receive applications at 615 Ellice Avenue.
