Submission of your supporting documents
Supporting documents include quotes/estimates from contractors, “before” photos of your project, proof of income, etc.
Submission of your supporting documents will be done separately by email.
Please do not submit an application without collecting all of your supporting documents first, and submitting them by email. Applications received without supporting documents will not be considered.
Please read the online application form in full (see links above). There is additional information that will help you understand the application’s requirements. You must be prepared to answer every question in full and submit every required document in one sitting.
Collect at least two (2) quotes/estimates
Take several “before” photos of your project.
Proof of Income documents (homeowners only)
All homeowners in Spence are welcome to apply for an incentive, however, qualifying as low income will improve your chances of getting an incentive, as SNA gives priority to lower income families.
Please review the homeowner application form for more information on how to qualify as low income. You will need to submit tax information to the SNA Housing Coordinator.
Rooming Houses: If you are applying to improve a rooming house, you must submit a copy of an up-to-date rooming house license.
