Self-Help Home Purchases

What is a Self-Help Home?

You paint the inside of your home and landscape. No experience is necessary and you work when you have time (weekend, nights). The price of homes in Whitman County makes it difficult for most working families to become homeowners. Community Action Center’s (CAC) primary focus is to provide affordable homes for families & individuals to purchase. We have built a total of 16 homes in Whitman County on a first come, first served basis to qualified homebuyers.

You can get reduced payments with the CAC Down Payment Loan if you are income qualified (up to 100% of median income). The amount and terms of the CAC Down Payment Loan depends on the annual income of the household.
