The Housing Rehabilitation Program includes low-interest loans and grants.
Housing Rehabilitation Loan
The loan program is available for homeowner-occupied homes. Currently, a homeowner who is income-qualified may borrow up to $15,000 at an interest rate of 3% to make various exterior or interior improvements. The loan may be repaid over 10 years. A homeowner who is over 65 may qualify for a 0% deferred loan.
Emergency Repair Grant
The Emergency Repair Grant may pay up to $3,750 to help low-income homeowners repair critical damage to a home or to eliminate specific and immediate hazards to health, safety and/or sanitation.
The Accessibility Grant may pay up to $3,750 to make ADA- related improvements to a home. Projects such as wheel-chair ramps, handrails, accessible toilets, and showers are eligible for this program.
Deployed Military Grant
The Deployed Military Grant may pay up to $3,750 to help homeowners repair critical damage to a home or to eliminate specific and immediate hazards to health, safety, and/or sanitation. The property must be owned and occupied by a deployed member of the U.S. Armed Forces.
Curb, Gutter, & Sidewalk Improvements

Protect Your Family From Lead in Your Home
Many houses and apartments built before 1978 have paint that contains lead. Lead from paint, chips and dust can pose serious hazards if not taken care of properly. Lead exposure can harm young children and babies even before they are born. Removing lead-based paint improperly can increase the danger to your family. For more information, please contact The National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-5323 or click on the links below:

Fair Housing - Equal Opportunity for All
The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in housing because of:
- National Origin
- Familial Status
- Handicap (Disability)
The Fair Housing Act covers most housing. In some circumstances, the Act exempts owner-occupied buildings with no more than four units, single-family housing sold or rented without the use of a broker and housing operated by organizations and private clubs that limit occupancy to members. For more information, to obtain a copy of the Fair Housing Handbook, or if you think your rights have been violated, you may write or telephone the following HUD Office, or click on the link below:
