programs & services

CHP addresses citizens’ need for assistance:

with maintaining their residence

with understanding the homebuying process

with experiencing homelessness

Owner-Occupied Program

CHP assists individuals who own their own home with emergency and restoration repairs. All applicants must income-qualify and meet all program  requirements. Repairs have included HVAC systems, roofs, accessibility ramps and light carpentry, electrical and plumbing work.

CHP uses a variety of funding sources for this program, including but not limited to: City of Franklin, Williamson County, United Way and USDA. Many times, additional funds from StarFish, GNRC, and other groups as well as the applicant are required to make the project work.

Homebuyers Education

CHP provides homebuyers education courses that walk clients through the full process of homebuying – from shopping to maintaining a home.

Education is delivered through eHomeAmerica’s online platform. After completing the online course, clients schedule a one-on-one follow-up session with a CHP HUD Certified Counselor to receive their certificate.
