A program where CalVet, together with affordable home builders, is bringing affordable home ownership to veterans who have low income. The CalVet REN (Residential Enriched Neighborhood) program utilizes the Enriched Neighborhood® model. This model provides permanent housing in a neighborhood context (12 homes or more) that focuses on moving low income families up into middle class through specifically designed services for veterans and their families. For a veteran to buy a home in a CalVet REN community, he/she must accomplish 2 things; (1) qualify for a CalVet Home Loan (approval is not based solely on FICO scores), and (2) Complete 500 Hours of sweat equity by both building his/her home and completing no-cost self-sufficiency training and courses.
