An eligible recipient may agree with an administering entity to do some or all of the improvement work without compensation from the proceeds of the grant or loan, if the administering entity is satisfied as to the recipient's skill and ability to perform the work by the scheduled completion date(s). In such circumstances sufficient grant or loan funds to cover the costs of the labor, in the event that paid contractors must be used to complete such improvements, may be withheld. Upon successful completion of the improvement work so funded, the administering entity may make available to the recipient all or part of the withheld funds for further eligible improvements if it is satisfied on the basis of its prior experience with the recipient that there is no need to withhold funds to ensure completion of the new improvement work.
