Home Rehabilitation Loans

Home Rehabilitation Program

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has made Community Development Block Grant and HOME Investment Partnership Program assistance available to Washington County for projects and activities which principally benefit low and moderate income persons. In addition, the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) has made funds available to Washington County for projects that provide affordable housing.

Consistent with the objectives of the Federal Community Development Block Grant Program and HOME Investment Partnership Program, the County Commissioners have established a program of housing rehabilitation loans designed to assist low and moderate income homeowners in making needed repairs and improvements to their properties.

The home rehabilitation loan may be used to correct present, or soon to be present, housing problems, and for energy conservation improvements. In general, most repairs are eligible except for unnecessary luxuries or strictly cosmetic repairs. All properties funded will, at a minimum, meet International Property Maintenance Code (ICC) Standards upon completion. The loan may not be used to refinance existing debt.
