ReNew SA

REnewSA is a new program for organizing and strategically deploying the community development tools administered by the Department of Planning and Community Development, Office of Historic Preservation, Center City Development Office, Development Services Department, other City departments, and outside partner agencies to create value from vacant, neglected, and underutilized properties in the City’s commercial corridors and neighborhoods.

REnewSA is a place-based interagency collaborative that is focused on measurable outcomes accomplished through partnerships, leveraging public investment, incentivizing private investment, and maximizing the use of distressed properties. REnewSA will ensure that the community development tools utilized by the City and outside partner agencies will be deployed in a coordinated manner to create real and lasting value from underutilized properties.

    6 Steps to Homeownership

    • Attend Department of Planning and Community Development (DPCD) Homebuyers’ CLUB classes to obtain better understanding of the purchasing process, requirements, credit, home maintenance, etc.
    • Shop for your loan and choose a mortgage company or bank to finance the purchase.
    • Locate the home you want to purchase. A realtor may be able to help you, but the program does not require that a realtor represent you.
    • You must enter into an Earnest Money Contract with the seller and deposit a minimum of $500 with the title company as evidence of your intent to purchase home.
    • When your loan application is approved, the lender will submit the required information to DPCD. Your lender will determine if you are eligible for assistance under the HIP program or you can call DPCD
    • Once your lender submits a complete file to keep, a DPCD representative will process the file for Homeownership Incentive Program (HIP) approval
