The Office of Historic Preservation is pleased to announce two exciting new programs for historic properties. The first is an Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Loan Program, which is offered in partnership with the City’s Housing and Neighborhood Services Department, to help low to moderate-income historic property owners. The purpose of this program is to promote and encourage the retention, preservation and restoration of locally-designated historic homes. The program will assist property owners with their restoration and rehabilitation projects through a combination of loans and grants. Some requirements include:
- Property must be located within the City limits;
- Structure must be an owner-occupied, residential building;
- Property must be located within a local historic district, designated as a local landmark, or eligible for historic designation; and
- Program income limits apply.
