The Nelson County Community Development Foundation (NCCDF) was organized in 1985 “to foster and promote community development that primarily benefits low- and moderate-income citizens of Nelson County, providing funds, personnel and other assistance for the development of housing, health, water and wastewater facilities, education, recreation and economic development.”
The NCCDF provides housing services through many programs, including First Time Homeowners, Indoor Plumbing and Owner-occupied Rehabs, Emergency Repairs for Elderly and Disabled and a Revolving Loan Program for a variety of purposes. NCCDF purchased its first Rent-to-Own Home in 1999, and plans to develop 10 additional rental properties in the next five years.
Indoor Plumbing and Rehabilitation Program
The IPR program is designed for those families that lack a septic system or their system has failed. This program assists families that lack a bathroom or plumbing in the footprint of their home. SERCAP is the Region 5 IPR provider and is the provider for Nelson County.
