City program offers no-interest loans for some home repairs

The city’s Office of Housing and Neighborhood Services’ Heating, Air Conditioning and Roof Program is now open to qualified residents.

The program offers no-interest 10-year loans for heating/air conditioning replacement or roof replacement projects. Applicants must own their home, it must be their primary residence and the home must be located within City limits. Applicants must also have a household income at or below 80 percent of the area median income, or $55,050 for a family of four.

Residents should call 260-427-8585 to apply. They will be asked a series of brief questions and then will be asked to leave their contact information on a voice mail system. Someone from the Office of Housing & Neighborhood Services will call them back to determine their eligibility.

Funding for this program comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and is limited. Residents will be served on a first-come first-serve basis and the program will be closed once funds are committed.
