Emergency Repair

Overview
This program provides long-term, low-interest loans for rental property owners. The program is designed to encourage emergency repair of existing rental housing and to quickly respond to housing conditions which, if uncorrected, would cause posting of the unit and displacement of tenants.  This Program is referred from General Housing, along with a code deficiency report.
