Requirements


Emergency Repair and Accessibility Grants

Minor repairs are funded by a grant from your city government, so the repairs have no cost to you as long as you continue to live in the home for at least 2 years. Grants may be approved for health and safety problems only. Common uses for the grant program are repairing doors, windows, and porches, and replacing water heaters, and minor plumbing or electrical repairs.

Home Rehabilitation Loans

For major repairs, one-time loans up to $75,000 are available. Subject to 3% simple annualized interest, loans can be either amortized (requiring monthly payments), or deferred (no monthly payments) for a 15-year term. Loans are not to be used for a home about to be sold, or to subsidize renovations already under construction. Mobile or manufactured homes are ineligible.

Common uses for the loan program include: reroofing, sewer line replacement, furnace installation, electrical/plumbing repair and termite and dry rot damage repair.
