East Providence Announces Home Improvement Grant Program

Posted

In a press release today the city announced details of its home improvement grant program. "Together with the Community Development Office, we have announced a grant and loan program for homeowners and landlords seeking to make general repairs," said Mayor Bob DaSilva.

Homeowners and landlords interested in updating old or inefficient heating equipment, replacing old windows and siding or updating leaky or old roofs, should consider this program. In addition, the program may also be used for lead paint hazard reduction. Lead paint can permanently harm children under the age of six.

The program offers grants, no-interest deferred payment loans and low-interest loans to owner-occupied and qualifying rental properties in East Providence. Eligibility is based on income and other factors.

Eligibility:

  • Those who own a single- or multi-family rental property in East Providence
  • Those whose household income is less than 80 percent of the area median income, adjusted by household size
  • Those whose tenant’s household income is less than 80 percent of the area median income, adjusted by household size
