The Office of Housing and Neighborhood Services Homeowner Repair Loan Program is now open to qualified residents.
The program offers 0% interest seven-year loans for heating, air conditioning or roof replacement. Applicants must own their home, it must be their primary residence and the home must be located within City limits. Applicants must also have a household income at or below 80 percent of the Area Median Income, or approximately $52,000 for a family of four.
How can residents apply? Residents should call 260-427-8585. They will be asked a series of brief questions and then will be asked to leave their contact information on a voice mail system. Someone from the Office of Housing & Neighborhood Services will call them back to determine their eligibility.
Funding for this program comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and is limited. Residents will be served on a first-come first-serve basis and the program will be closed once funds are committed.
