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.

Note: The Home Preservation Initiative will be on winter break beginning Wednesday, November 23, 2022 until Friday, March 3, 2023, except for emergency circumstances. HPI home visits will resume on Monday, March 6, 2023 in the order they were received. If we have already completed your home visit, you may continue to submit a loan application during the winter break. Please reach out if you have any questions. Thank you!
