The Application Dream Maker (DM 3) Infill Housing Development Requirements (guidelines) went into effect on February 01, 2010. The house must be built to the New Construction Specifications, at a minimum, be “Earthcraft” certified and must be pre-approved by the Department of Housing (DOH) prior to the start of construction. If the Project is approved, a Project approval will be issued in writing.
All projects, prior to final approval for the DM3 program, will need the following items submitted:
Site plan drawn to scale (i.e.1” = 10’; professionally drawn)
With a DM3 approved house, the assistance a qualified buyer will be eligible for varies depending on the neighborhood. If the house is not built to these DM3 standards, an eligible buyer would qualify for at least $1,000 usually up to $10,000 depending on the neighborhood. The DOH will make the final determination on how much assistance a buyer will qualify for when they make application.
