PROGRAMS & QUALIFICATIONS
The Housing Rehabilitation Program, through the Grants Office of the City of Gloucester, offers deferred payment, 0% interest loans to owner-occupied properties (1- 7 units). Funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program.
The Housing Rehab Program will provide assistance to homeowners in need of emergency repairs, building/health code violation repairs, and/or other repairs in order to improve the safety, accessibility, and energy-efficiency of their home.
Owner-occupied single and multi-family properties are eligible for rehabilitation assistance.
1) Property must be owner-occupied;
2) Property owner and/or tenant MUST fall within HUD Income Guidelines at the time of assistance;
3) Assistance is provided as deferred payment, 0% interest loans.
In cases of demonstrated need (such as deleading), the Grants Office will provide a deferred, 0% interest loan to assist owners of investment residential rental properties under 7 units. Larger rental properties will be directed to alternative funding opportunities. Please call the office to discuss further.
