      3. “Home” means a single-family residence located on no more than one-acre of land the value of which does not exceed lower of the average Purchase Price Cap or $550,000.
      4. “Home Acquisition Amount” is an amount equal to the aggregate of the Purchase Price of a Home that is located in the Finalist’s Geographical Area and the Qualified Home Improvement Amount.

      7. “Purchase Price Cap” is the amount equal to the average purchase price of other homes in the Geographical Area that have closed during the preceding twelve (12) months plus the normal and customary costs of conveyancing in the Geographical Area. This average sales price will be determined by comparing a reasonable set of comparable home sales data for the Geographical Area to be provided by a vendor of 4-LiPHE’s selection. Final determination on the Purchase Price Cap will be at the sole discretion of 4-LiPHE.
      8. “Qualified Home Improvement Amount” is the amount, not to exceed $100,000, equal to the costs for the improvements or modifications to the Home Award home that are reasonable and necessary to address the Finalist’s needs arising from his or her disability.

The determination as to the reasonableness, necessity and cost of all such improvements and/or modifications will be in the sole discretion of 4-LiPHE. All work must be performed by a licensed, insured and bonded contractor licensed to work within the Geographical Area of the Home pursuant to a written contract that is approved by 4-LiPHE or its participating Foundation. The Qualified Home Improvement Amount will only be disbursed by 4-LiPHE to the contractor or to the participating Foundation approved by 4-LiPHE. No portion of the Qualified Home Improvement Amount will be paid directly to the Finalist.
  9. AWARD NOTIFICATION: Upon completion of the Public Voting Stage and subject to determination of the Finalists continuing eligibility to receive the Award, all Finalists will be notified of their Award.
  10. METHOD OF NOTIFICATIONS: All notifications will be sent by email. 4-LiPHE will also attempt to contact you at the last telephone number appearing in 4-LiPHE’s records.

  11. FINAL ELIGIBILITY DETERMINATION. No Award will be made to a Finalist until 4-LiPHE has determined that the Finalists continues to be eligible to receive the Award, which decision is final and binding in all matters related to the program. Prior to making any Award, 4-LiPHE will require each Finalist to submit certification that confirms, among other things, that the information previously provided by the Finalist is still true and accurate and that no event has occurred which would cause the Finalist to be ineligible under the General Rules or any Supplemental Rules. If the potential recipient does not respond to 4-LiPHE’s notice or does not return the certification within the time period established by 4-LiPHE, the Finalist will be disqualified and the Award forfeited. In such case:
    1. If the Finalist was to receive the Home Award, the Home Award will be Awarded to the Finalist who received the next highest number of public votes; and
    2. The amount of the Dream Award that was forfeited will be retained by 4-LiPHE for distribution in another of 4-LiPHE’s Programs.

    4-LiPHE will announce the Finalists on each Program Webpage, where the Finalists’ name and biographical information will be displayed.
  13. FORFEITURE OF AWARD.
    1. If any potential winner cannot be contacted within a reasonable time period (as determined by 4-LiPHE in its sole discretion), if the potential winner is determined to be ineligible, if any notification is returned undeliverable, or if the potential winner otherwise fails to fully comply with these General Rules or any Supplemental Rules (if any), the Finalist will be deemed to have forfeited the Award.
    2. The unused balance of the Dream Award will be deemed cancelled and forfeited upon the death of a Dream Award recipient.
  14. DISCLAIMER. The availability of sufficient monies to pay the Awards is entirely dependent upon charitable donations from third parties. In the event the amount of charitable donations for any specific Program is insufficient (after deduction of all normal and customary expenses relating to the administration of the Program) to pay the Awards in full, all Awards will be reduced on a pro-rata basis. No Finalist has a vested right to receive an Award. All of the Award elements are subject to change and shall be determined by 4-LiPHE in its sole discretion.
