Housing Rehabilitation is a part of the Community Development Department.
This program provides financial and technical assistance to qualified owner occupants and investors to repair substandard properties. In targeted areas, low and moderate income owner occupants are eligible for direct and deferred payment loans, and investor owners are eligible for direct payment loans to repair single family dwellings. Investors are also eligible for direct payment loans to repair multifamily properties citywide.
In the Emergency Repair Program, which operates citywide, loans are available to remedy housing conditions, which pose an imminent threat to the occupant's health or safety. Citywide financial assistance is also available to remove architectural barriers to the mobility and accessibility of handicapped persons.
