Scott County CDA Homeownership
We're in this together.
Creating possibilities for housing is core to our mission, and this includes helping homeowners. We offer free programs for folks to explore first-time homeownership, learn about how to fix-up or invest in the homes they already have, and help those facing foreclosure find answers. Through these programs, prospective and current homeowners are supplied with information from a trusted source, and that’s just the lift people need to make sense of complex circumstances.
We’re all about collaboration. Our clients work with us to set goals and understanding the best way to move ahead to find successful outcomes.

Home Fix-Up Resources
That drippy faucet. The crooked garage door. We all have to-do lists around the house! And for the bigger projects, we help homeowners tackle tasks that include items such as remodeling projects, energy saving improvements like window replacements and HVAC system upgrades. The CDA refers folks to a number of partners that can help you increase the value of your home and finally cross things off the to-do list. Read about these programs here.

“I had a heart attack last year and couldn’t work or pay my mortgage for a few months. I asked a company to help me, but it turned out to be a scam. I then contacted the CDA and they helped me with the lender and referred me to the MN Attorney General to address the scam. In just 45 days, my lender approved a workout option. I am now current on my mortgage and can afford to remain in my home even on my fixed income!” ~2018 CDA participant
