About HIPP

The Housing and Neighborhood Revitalization Department strengthens families and neighborhoods to cultivate a diverse and economically inclusive City by creating affordable and safe housing and mitigating community member displacement.

The Major Rehabilitation Forgivable Loan Program (Major Rehab Program) is a forgivable loan program to low-and moderate-income homeowners for the purpose of making needed repairs to preserve affordable housing. Major Rehab is designed to ensure the longevity of the home and to address health, safety, accessibility modification, reconstruction and structural/deferred maintenance deficiencies. The impact of Major Rehab will bring suitable living conditions, health and welfare and expand economic opportunities revitalizing neighborhoods. Funding for this program is provided by HUD CDBG funds (limited to assistance provided to 80% area median family income (AMFI) households or below); and potentially non-federal funds, if available, at 120% AMI households or below. The program cannot exceed $50,000.
