Take Advantage of the Choice Home Repair Program TODAY!

General Choice Flyer (as of 9.12.18)-1

Attention homeowners in the Choice neighborhood, please consider applying to the Choice Home Repair Program today. If you apply and qualify before the end of the year, you would be moved to the front of the city-wide home repair program wait-list. Additionally, homeowners in the Choice neighborhood footprint would qualify for not only one but two forgivable loans!

Under the Choice Home Repair Program, qualifying homeowners can receive up to $30,000 in home repair assist to help bring their homes back up to code. $10,000 of that loan would be forgivable through the Choice Home Repair Program and another $10,000 will be forgivable through the Healthy Home Repair Program. Please note that the forgivable portion of the loan depends on if you do stay in your home for the five years after receiving the loan. The amount forgiven depends on how long you stay at the home.

For more information, call us today at (314) 385-4343 x 2 or print and send us your application today! See the application here.

We are calling this our ANTI-Gentrification Program as it aims to stabilize North City homeowners! Call us today!
