Home Modification Loan Program

Looking to make your home more accessible? Are you a landlord with a tenant with a disability? Then the Home Modification Loan Program may be for you.

The Home Modification loan program allows you to borrow up to $30,000 at 0- 3% depending on household income to make home modifications related to disability. Modifications may include home security, stair lifts, bathroom, kitchen modifications and more. Eligible applicants may qualify for a deferred loan meaning it does not have to be repaid and does not accrue interest until the house is sold. More information at www.cedac.org/hmlp

Landlors with less than ten units and with tenants with disabilities qualify for this program. Please see www.cedac.org/hmlp  for eligibility criteria and application process
