What is it?
The program is to assist low and moderate income residents to improve their housing situation.  Eligible improvements include:

Grant regulations require that certain items be addressed first (i.e. building and sanitary code compliance, serious maintenance problems, etc.)  The maximum funding per project is generally up to $35,000.00.  As long as you own your home, this is a payment and interest free loan, based on a 15 year forgiveness schedule.  It decreases 5% per year up to 15 years, and then you owe nothing.
