Admin Fee for Applicants/Sponsors
|7.5 percent of the total cost of repair work (maximum administration fee is $1,125).
This limit does not include labor or construction management costs. The administration fee is separate from the maximum assistance amount. Therefore, the maximum per-property funding is $16,125.
|Before releasing funds and before repair work can begin, KHC must receive property photos and approve a detailed scope of work. Before final reimbursement is made, the home must pass KHC's onsite inspection of completed work.
