Home Preservation Initiative

Maintain and repair your older home

Free renovation advice & low-interest loans

The Home Preservation Initiative helps homeowners maintain and repair their home. This includes a home visit, free general advice, contractor recommendations, and access to low-interest loans.

Please note - all available home visit appointments have now been reserved for the 2023 season. Our Home Preservation Initiative will be on a 'winter break' from November 27, 2023 to March 1, 2024. If you request a home visit during this time, we will reach out to schedule with you as home visit appointments resume on March 4, 2024. If you have a serious emergency, please Contact Us at any time.

How it works

The Home Preservation Initiative (HPI) provides homeowners with the tools and resources they need to preserve their home. Homes in Lucas County that are current on property taxes are eligible for the HPI. Homes don't need to have a historic designation to apply.

  • Furnaces, boilers, and air conditioning
  • Roof replacements

  • Energy efficiency improvements
  • Kitchen and bath remodeling

  • And more!

Lender Partners

Home equity loans at 4.25%* are made possible by these local lenders:
