Household Well Water

Household Well Water Systems

The San Luis Valley Housing Coalition is now offering a Household Well Water System program to help income qualified homeowners replace or repair an unsafe water system. This program can be used to replace or repair an already existing well or to drill a new well when an unsafe water system is being used, like a cistern with mold issues. A home must be on the property with an occupancy permit or the ability to obtain the permit once the water system is improved. This cannot be used for new construction.

Affordable monthly payments may be tailored to suit your particular financial situation. Your monthly payments to the SLVHC will be deposited into a Revolving Loan Fund so that others in need of rehabilitation may receive assistance.
