Housing Rehabilitation Loan Program (HRLP)

The Housing Rehabilitation Loan Program (HRLP) is designed to assist low-and-moderate income homeowners with the repair and /or replacement of the following major housing components: Roof, Electrical, Furnace, and Plumbing – including sanitary sewer connections.  The goal of the HRLP is to not only maintain the structural integrity and essential operations of the house, but also to efficiently utilize funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to benefit (51) Urban County Communities throughout Cuyahoga County.  The initial inspection is performed by a Building Rehabilitation Specialist.  The scope of work is then determined by a Housing Committee within the Department of Development.  Please note – often times the need for assistance is greater than the resources available so there is usually a waiting list for the HRLP.

Loans are offered at below-market interest rates, and loan amounts are based upon approved housing specifications (scope of work) with terms up to 20 years.  Interest rate and term of loan depend on yearly (gross) income and are available for one to four-family owner occupied homes.  The following required services are provided by the HRLP: title search, credit check and property appraisal.  Senior citizens at or above 62 year of age who meet eligibility and income criteria may qualify for a deferred loan:  Payments are deferred and the full loan amount becomes due when the property transfers title.
