Residents also may take part in the Housing Repair Program’s offer of a forgivable loan of up to $12,500 for homes that are at least 50 years old.

The Urgent Repair Program offers a forgivable loan up to $12,500 to assist with the rehabilitation of deteriorated homes. This program aims to secure homes that have an imminent threat to the life or safety of homeowners.
