Program ("Housing Rehab")
- This program makes loans to eligible homeowners to have essential
repairs carried out by private contractors. The loan does not have to
be repaid until the property is eventually transferred to new ownership;
there is no monthly payment. The current maximum loan is $25,000, and
there is a 2.5% annual simple interest charge. County inspectors make
sure that all work is completed correctly. Participation in the program
is limited to income - eligible homeowners in 18 Middlesex County municipalities.
