  • Adapt a home for accessibility
  • Exterior appearance upgrades

How does the loan work?

  • Loans are recorded as a Lien against your property
  • Home Repair Loans are funded with Federal Community Development Block Grant Funds.
  • Loans are repayable when the house is sold, the house changes ownership, or the owner no longer lives in the house.
